RFA Interview Series – Tim Reddell

Tim is an engineer whose career in fishing began in 1985 when he joined I&J as an industrial engineer. He rose quickly through the ranks to eventually be appointed operations director, responsible for the efficient operation of the company’s fishing fleet and processing facilities. His departure from I&J in 2004 allowed Tim to give full reign to his entrepreneurial spirit and by the time long-term rights were allocated in 2006, he had acquired a number of fishing companies and vessels and was a partner in several fishing ventures. These have since been incorporated into the Viking Fishing Group of which Tim is operations director.
