Vancouver Fraser Port Authority CEO announces retirement


Vancouver Fraser Port Authority CEO, Robin Silvester, has announced his retirement after more than 14 years leading the port authority.

During Robin’s time with the port authority, investments in the Vancouver gateway have helped drive around 40 per cent growth in international trade through the Port of Vancouver, the port reported.

The port authority continued to attribute much of its sustainable efforts, including programmes to protect the environment and enable thriving communities, to Robin’s guidance.

Robin will be staying on to support a leadership transition, with more details to follow in the coming weeks.

The Board of Directors will undertake a global search for a new President and CEO.

Judy Rogers, Chair of the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority Board of Directors, said: “Robin helped guide the port authority through a period of incredible growth and accomplishment, culminating with the recent federal environmental assessment approval of the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project.”

“The port authority has a strong leadership team to lead it into the future, and I want to thank the entire port team for their contributions to our collective success,” said Robin.

“With support from our partners, we have delivered over $1 billion of infrastructure over the last decade and a half.”

This announcement comes less than two weeks after DP World and the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority celebrated two historic events – the completion of the Centerm Expansion Project at DP World Vancouver, and the 100th anniversary of the port’s marine terminal operations.
