Tselikis’s career in Maine’s marine industry started on the stern of a ferryboat in Portland Harbor and has evolved to cover the entire coast of Maine as she supported commercial fishing organizations and lobster businesses. Annie joined Cousins Maine Lobster, a leading food truck concept and provider of the tastiest lobster rolls in the country in 2021 as their director of marketing and franchise sales. Cousins Maine Lobster was founded in 2012 by real life cousins and native Mainers, Jim Tselikis and Sabin Lomac (Annie’s brother and cousin, respectively).
In 2014, Tselikis became the first executive director of the Maine Lobster Dealers’ Association where she advocated for lobster wharves, wholesalers, and processors in Maine at the local, state and federal level. She previously worked in procurement for Garbo Lobster and was the marketing manager at Maine Coast leading their digital marketing strategies, international trade shows, and trade missions promoting Maine lobster to customers worldwide. She has supported several of Maine’s commercial fishing organizations with leadership and business training programs and has served many state and NGO seafood industry and coastal community boards. Tselikis grew up in Cape Elizabeth and graduated from Connecticut College in 2004. She currently lives in South Portland and gives Stonington, Maine all the credit for bringing her up in the lobster business.
