AI-Native Aquaculture Startup Vertical Oceans Appoints New CFO

  (SINGAPORE, 11/1/2023)

Vertical Oceans, the world’s first AI-native, automated, and fully sustainable aquaculture production and marketing startup, is pleased to welcome Patrick Vizzone as its Co-Founder and Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

Born in Australia, and having resided in Greater China and Japan since 1993, Patrick joins John Diener (Founder and CEO) and Enzo Acerbi (Co-Founder and CTO) as part of the founding team. In his new role at Vertical Oceans, Patrick will be responsible for all aspects of financial management, strategy, and business development.

Vertical Oceans is producing sustainable seafood using a balanced ecosystem of shrimp, fish, and algae managed by smart algorithms.

Patrick’s extensive experience in the agri-food sector, finance and investing, his operational roles in start-ups and his extensive boardroom and corporate governance experience, will be instrumental in driving Vertical Oceans’ mission to revolutionize aquaculture through its cutting-edge technology.

Patrick has a long history with hyper-perishable foods and is a Board member of the International Fresh Produce Association. This is a great fit for the same day farm to fork fresh shrimp 365 days a year.

 Vertical Oceans is elevating shrimp through its advanced vertical aquaculture system.

Vizzone said: "I am  thrilled to announce that after more than two decades in financial services focusing on food, agribusiness, and sustainability, I have joined Vertical Oceans as Co-Founder and Chief Financial Officer. A partnership years in the making, John F. Diener and I share a friendship and professional relationship that spans over 15 years. Throughout this time, we've been in regular dialogue about this groundbreaking shrimp production and marketing project. John, together with co-founder, Enzo Acerbi, have passionately and diligently developed the critical technology and IP to bring John's vision to life. I’m delighted to be a part of that".

"I am excited to contribute to Vertical Oceans, by leading financial strategy and management, business development, corporate governance and, of course, contributing to our mission of advancing the world's leading "AI native" sustainable and efficient aquaculture system", Vizzone added.
