Marks & Spencer (M&S) is an international, multi-channel retailer, with over 1000 stores in the UK and more than 400 stores across 55 international territories. Sustainable sourcing of raw materials is at the heart of the M&S procurement strategy and this was reinforced through the launch of their Plan A campaign in 2007, which remains live today.

As Fisheries & Aquaculture Manager, Hannah is responsible for leading M&S’s strategy for global sustainable seafood procurement, delivering security of supply and ensuring sources are in line with customer expectations on environmental, animal welfare and social and ethical standards.

A Marine Biology graduate, Hannah first worked for Marine Ecological Surveys Ltd., a UK based marine consultancy company, providing scientific advice on the impacts of major industrial and construction developments in the marine environment.

Since joining M&S in January 2010, Hannah has worked on a number of projects both internally and in collaboration with the NGO community and industry. In 2011, Hannah played a key role in the development and launch of Forever Fish, a major, cross business, Plan A campaign. More recently, Hannah has been responsible for launching an innovative, interactive transparency tool, helping millions of M&S customers to connect with their seafood products and make informed choices.

In addition to her internal commitments, Hannah also is also a Board Director of Fisheries Innovation Scotland, and represents M&S on a number of initiatives, including the Responsible Fishing Scheme Oversight Board, multiple Fishery Improvement Project steering committees, the Global Tuna Alliance and the Global Ghost Gear Initiative.
