There are more 370 people working at Neptune Terminals, each of whom help power the company’s operations every day.

Duana Kipling, Vice President, Operations, oversees all aspects of Neptune’s operations and is responsible for ensuring Neptune continues to be a safe, sustainable, and stable place to work.

“Neptune’s commitments to safety, the environment and our community really align with my own,” said Duana. “We take pride in creating a great place for people to work and contributing to the North Vancouver community, which is an ideal combination that enhances the culture and character of our city.”

Duana was born and raised in Melfort, Saskatchewan, a small farming community within a two-hour drive of Saskatoon. She graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and soon landed at Canadian Pacific Railway. Following a successful 13-year career at CP where she held progressively senior roles she worked with Aurizon in Queensland, Australia, where she managed a significant coal loading operation handling 20 million tonnes each year. Earlier this year, Duana relocated to North Vancouver, drawn by the upgrades and growth underway at Neptune.

Neptune is a leader in waterfront safety, a responsible steward of the environment that works hard every day to mitigate impacts on the community, and an employer that provides hundreds of good paying jobs that enable people to live and work on the North Shore and elsewhere in Greater Vancouver.

“A highlight of working at Neptune is our open door policy. We engage with our community in many ways, providing updates on the company’s activities and hosting hands-on terminal tours,” said Duana. “We are also focused on delivering value to employees and our customers—we are doing a great job with both and I look forward to continuing to build on our success.”
