Mark S. Whitney, President, CEO
Mark’s Grandfather started Whitney and Son Seafoods in 1929, selling seafood in the Chicago, Illinois area. When he retired, Mark’s father continued the tradition and after years of careful consideration, he made a life altering decision to uproot his family and business, and move to Florida. Whitney and Son Seafoods, Inc., has been in the same, original location since 1972. Mark took over the business as President and CEO at age 25 and has never looked back, continuing to carry on the family tradition of supplying only the finest and freshest seafood, and striving for excellence in every aspect at Whitney and Son Seafoods, Inc.

Mark is active in several different charities, children’s hospitals, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Make A Wish Foundation and believes in serving his community.



Dave Metzler, Vice President
Dave joined his cousin Mark in the family business in 1980. Dave has come to know the seafood business inside and out from the ground up. There is nothing at Whitney and Son Seafoods, that Dave can’t do, whether it be running a delivery route, to cutting fish to the accounting office and human resources. Dave enjoys his work, always has a positive attitude and shares the same goals with Mark in continuously striving for excellence.



Mrs. Whitney, Accounting
Mrs. Whitney has been involved since day one when her husband, Mark’s father took over the business from his father. For many years Mrs. Whitney helped her husband run this business both in Chicago as well as after moving here to Florida in 1972. After turning the business over to Mark, Mrs. Whitney continues to stay on and oversee the Human Resources and Accounting departments.
