Marianne LaCroix Named as Acting Executive Director
Portland, ME (October 1, 2012) – Following the resignation of Dane Somers today as Executive Director of the Maine Lobster Promotion Council, Marianne LaCroix has been appointed as Acting Executive Director for the Maine Lobster Promotion Council by the Board of Directors.  Marianne will serve in that capacity in the interim period until the Maine Legislature weighs a proposal that would create a new lobster marketing entity later this winter.  Marianne has served as Director of Marketing for the Council for the past six years.
Formerly, Dane Somers served as Executive Director for the Council for the past 5 years. Emily Lane, Council Chair noted, "We appreciate the work Dane Somers has done for the Maine lobster industry and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
"The lobster industry in Maine is facing many challenges,” stated Lane.  "The Maine Lobster Promotion Council is prepared to face these challenges and move forward with new leadership and positive energy.”
