PORTLAND, Maine — As Maine and its lobster industry work to revamp the way the state’s signature seafood is promoted, there has been an abrupt shakeup in who will lead that effort.

Dane Somers, executive director of the Maine Lobster Promotion Council, resigned his position Tuesday, according to a press release sent out by the council. Marianne LaCroix, the council’s director of marketing the past six years, takes over as acting director, effective immediately, according to the council’s chairwoman, Emily Lane. Lane is vice president of sales for Calendar Islands Maine Lobster Company.
