Cooke Aquaculture Inc is a family-owned company based in New Brunswick, Canada. Established in 1985, over the years the company has expanded its facilities, product lines and distribution network to become a fully integrated corporation, with operations throughout the world. These include salmon farming operations in Atlantic Canada, the United States, Chile, and Scotland, as well as seabass and sea bream farming operations in Spain.
In recent years, Cooke has embarked on an aggressive plan for growth, including acquisitions and an ongoing strategic search for development opportunities. Through acquisitions they have further diversified the product offering and expanded their seafood assets into the wild fishery.
Reporting to the CFO, you will hold primary responsibility for In-house bank management, cash and liquidity forecasting and management, bank relationship management, financial risk management (foreign exchange, commodity, and interest rate), working capital financing and Treasury reporting and for the day-to-day operational aspects of the treasury department for Cooke’s global group of companies.
This is an exciting opportunity to shape the treasury function within Cooke and to have creative responsibility for the growth and direction of the function within the wider context of the business. In recent years, the Treasury function has incorporated a Treasury Management system (Kyriba) and has commenced the development of an in-house banking strategy. Both of these aspects are in exciting phases of growth and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to lead and define this journey for the function.
