Bumble Bee Seafoods has named Andrew Choe as Chief Executive Officer, effective as of April 1.

Choe was appointed to the position by Jerry Chou, Bumble Bee chair of the board, where he will continue to serve. Chou served as interim CEO beginning in July 2022.

Choe spent more than a decade at StarKist, as SVP of Supply Chain and Operations for two years, and then as CEO for eight years. In his tenure, he was engaged in all aspects of the business including supply chain management, manufacturing, customer and broker relations, innovation and brand building. Choe most recently served as CEO for SENSEE World, a company that provides products to help the visually impaired community.

"Bumble Bee is heading in an exciting direction, and I could not be more pleased to join the team at this pivotal moment in time," said Choe. "I look forward to unleashing the potential of the company with an immediate focus on continuing to grow the brand and cultivating relationships with our key customers, suppliers and with Bumble Bee employees."

After earning degrees in psychology and economics from the University of California Los Angeles, Choe received an MBA, with concentrations in finance and operations management, from Yale.
