StarKist names interim president after CEO quits

StarKist Co., with headquarters on the North Shore, named an interim president on Tuesday because its CEO, in-Soo Cho, resigned. Sam Hwi Lee becomes president of the seafood products maker effective Thursday, the company said. Lee, a StarKist director and former Nestle Korea president, will be based in Pittsburgh as StarKist's parent, the Dongwon Group, searches for a permanent replacement for Cho. Lee also is a former Dole Food Co. and Armour Foods Co. executive. Cho joined StarKist in March 2011, and resigned to pursue new opportunities, the company said.
