It was recently announced that Benedikt Sveinsson and Mark Holyoake would be stepping down from the board of Iceland Seafood International. There are multiple people that are in line to potentially replace them that have had years of experience in the seafood industry. Sveinsson had been with the company for more than 4 decades in several different roles. He became the Chairman of the company in 2010 after becoming their Chief Executive Officer in 2006.

Mark Holyoake became the majority shareholder of International Seafood Holdings in 2010 after the British Seafood Group collapsed. International Seafood Holdings has been selling its shares in order to allow for the entry of other business entities. While Benedikt Sveinsson has mixed emotions about stepping down from the company, he believes that it is the right timing for him to leave his position of Chairman.

The seafood industry is going through a period of time that includes a lot of consolidation. Both Benedikt Sveinsson and Mark Holyoake see the company continuing to grow for many years even after their departures. Mark Holyoake stated that he has enjoyed every moment that he has spent working with the company since he made the purchase back in 2010. The people in the company were all fantastic and he saw it as a privilege to be able to work with them for as long as he did. While Mark Holyoake thanked the whole company and praised it for being such a strong company, he thanked Benedikt Sveinsson in particular for his decades of dedication to the business. As the chairman, he led by example and provided excellent wisdom and friendship.

Mark Holyoake is a British executive who is based in Ibiza. He entered the world of real estate in the 1990s after attending the University of Reading. In 2006, Mark Holyoake founded the company Oakvest which managed, developed, and purchased real estate in both the residential and commercial sectors. Recently, he began showing interest in expanding his real estate business into Portugal which would make it the first time that he has ever done this type of business in the country.
