Todd entered the seafood business in his early teens helping at his father's fish market and fish bar Queen Anne Seafoods in Seattle. While working his way through school he worked as a commercial fisherman in Alaska as well as at a Dungeness crab plant. After graduation he went to work for John at Seatech Corporation. He represents the third generation of the Wendt family in the seafood business. Todd oversees all aspects of the business from purchasing, quality control, marketing, sales and everything else in between. The most important aspect of the business is supplying top quality product to customers which the Wendt family has been known for industry wide.
John entered the seafood business going to work at his father's shrimp processing plant in Alaska shoveling shrimp for hours at a time. He then went to work for Catz American Company, a food importer in New York. He then returned to Seattle to work for his father again this time in the Seattle office for Pacific Pearl Seafoods in domestic and international sales. Trans Pacific Seafoods bought out Pacific Pearl Seafoods where John remained for a short while in the role of sales manager. His next step was creating his own company Wendt International as a broker and trader of Alaskan Seafood. He added seafood imports from Chile in 1980 and soon formed Seatech Corporation in a partnership with Deep Sea Fisheries. Eventually he bought out Deep Sea's stock taking control of Seatech and focusing on seafood imports from South America.
