It is with deep sadness that Seaboard Corporation, parent company of Seaboard Marine, announced today that Steven J. Bresky, Chairman and CEO, died July 10, 2020 in Kansas City. He was 67.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Steve was the third generation of his family to lead Seaboard in its 102-year history. He had been head of since 2006, when he was appointed to the position to replace his father, Harry Bresky, who had retired.
Steve’s exceptional work ethic, long-term commitment to Seaboard’s partners and businesses, strong mandate that the company produce quality products and provide quality service and unwavering desire to always do the right thing were integral to the company’s success and made him truly one of a kind. He strongly supported all of Seaboard Corporation’s business segments including Seaboard Marine.
The management and employees of Seaboard Marine extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Ellen and his children, Jack and Elizabeth. We will miss Steve’s guidance, wisdom and friendship.
