Port Metro Vancouver Announces Smaller and Sttreamlined Executive

Message to Customers and Stakeholders

Re: New PMV executive organisation structure

Since joining Port Metro Vancouver earlier this year, a priority of mine has been to meet with many of you to get a better understanding of your activities, and how we at Port Metro Vancouver most appropriately support the continued development of the Port and the Gateway, and meet the needs you have of the Gateway now and into the future.

I am very pleased to announce a new Executive Team for Port Metro Vancouver, as below, who will be taking on the challenge of leading Port Metro Vancouver forward to deliver our strategic priorities and to continue to develop Port Metro Vancouver as a key component of one of North America’ leading gateways. This team will be very focused on working closely with all of our stakeholders to ensure Port Metro Vancouver fully understands and works to deliver your needs of the Gateway.

Chris Badger – Chief Operations Officer
Allan Baydala – Chief Financial Officer
Tom Corsie – Vice President Real Estate
Christine Dioszeghy – Vice President Human Resources
Peter Xotta – Vice President Planning and Development

All of the Executive will report directly to me.

Graham Kee will be retiring at the end of March but until then will be taking on the role of Vice President Olympic Operations.

I am confident that this smaller and more streamlined Executive positions Port Metro Vancouver very well for the future. I, and the new Executive, look forward to continuing to work closely with you to seize the full potential of Asia Pacific trade for Canada.

Robin Silvester
President & CEO
