Hines has been in the tuna business for 34 years. He joined Bumble Bee Foods in 1997, when Orleans Foods was acquired, and has also worked at Chicken of the Sea and Mitsui Foods. Chris Lischewski, chief executive officer of Bumble Bee, said in a statement that Hines would “continue to represent Bumble Bee in a number of our global supply chain and growth initiatives and will be involved in our M&A activities [...] he will continue to provide input into the strategic direction of the company.” He will be replaced by Jan Tharp, who has been with Bumble Bee since July 2010, and previously worked at fellow US tuna canner, StarKist.
