Pierson and Janzow Join Peter Pan Seafood
Brody Pierson and Gayle Janzow have joined the Peter Pan Seafood Company team. Pierson is leading domestic and international sales for shelf-stable products. Janzow is the plant manager for the Valdez plant.
Pierson brings extensive domestic canned sales and logistics experience to the team, having most recently served as domestic canned sales manager at Icicle Seafoods and OBI Seafoods. Additionally, Pierson has prior export and trading experience.
Janzow has more than 20 years of experience in seafood operations. She has spent time in production and processing, including value-added at Orca Bay Foods and in production technology at Marel. During college, she began working summers at Peter Pan on the can lines and now years later when she had the opportunity to return to Peter Pan, she said yes.
Peter Pan came under new ownership in January 2021, bringing the company back under U.S. and Alaska ownership and becoming a vertically integrated seafood company with a focus on value-added sales channels combined with the legacy of a storied seafood processor in Alaska.
