It is with profound sadness that Seaboard Corporation, parent company of Seaboard Marine, announces that H. Harry Bresky, Chairman and member of the Board, died March 11, 2007 in Boston. He was 81.
A native of Boston, Mr. Bresky was an undergraduate at Yale University when his studies were interrupted by service in World War II. When the war ended, Mr. Bresky joined the milling business established in 1921 by his father Otto Bresky. Mr. Bresky was President and Chief Executive Officer of Seaboard Corporation from 1967 until his retirement in July 2006. He was the Chairman of the Board from 1973 until his death.
Under his leadership, Seaboard Corporation was transformed from a domestic flour milling company to an international agribusiness and transportation company engaged in various industries including pork production, ocean transportation, commodity merchandising, grain processing, sugar production and electric power generation.
The management and employees of Seaboard Marine extend our deepest sympathy to Mr. Bresky’s family during this time of loss. We will miss his guidance and wisdom.
