Leadership Luncheon: Briana Warner of Atlantic Sea Farms

November 10, 11:30 AM1:00 PM

$20 – $25

Enjoy a fabulous lunch and meet Briana Warner, President/CEO of Atlantic Sea Farms in Saco. She will share her challenges in growing this successful business, along with her vision for future growth in the kelp field, her notable entrepreneurial path and lifelong experiences that propelled her to her current position.

Briana has dedicated her life to doing well by doing good. She is passionate about her incredible home state of Maine and working with partner farmers to help create a more resilient and thriving coast. Since taking over as CEO at Atlantic Sea Farms in 2018, she and her team have expanded the company to work with 24 partner farmers from Portland to Eastport.

Briana has followed a winding path that brought her to kelp - including serving several tours as an economist and diplomat in the U.S. Foreign Service, starting and selling a wholesale bakery in Portland focused on pies with an international flair and employing recent refugees resettled to the area, and creating the first Economic Development programming suite at the Maine-based Island Institute. She is an avid gardener, an obsessive cook, and a proud mother of two rad sons.

In 2020, Briana was named an Eating Well Magazine Food Hero, awarded the Specialty Foods Association's Business Leadership Award, and had the honor of sitting on several state, national, and global aquaculture and business policy boards. She also believes that she happens to lead the very best team of people in the natural foods space - and challenges you to prove her wrong.
