Kevin Ellis has a natural aptitude for problem-solving. An electrical engineer, Ellis knows the plant inside-out and is responsible for keeping the machines running.

His job requires myriad skills and the ability to stay energised and focused at all times. Since joining the Rainforest Seafoods team, Ellis has moved through the ranks to his current position as plant maintenance supervisor.

He was recently chosen as part of an elite team of employees to participate in the Rainforest Seafoods Employee Development Programme. The programme allows employees to have regular interaction with and mentoring from senior members of the management team, and also gives them the opportunity to represent Rainforest at local and overseas events.

"It is an ongoing process that I am looking forward to. Being recognised in this way has really motivated me to continue being my best on the job," Ellis said.

Rainforest Seafoods is the Caribbean's largest supplier of premium-quality fish and seafood.
