In October, Neptune welcomed a new President, Megan Owen-Evans. Megan is an experienced leader on the Vancouver waterfront, having previously served as President of Fibreco for several years, in addition to many years of other terminal and operations management. A Capilano University alumna, Megan has a long-standing connection to the North Shore and an affinity for all things outdoors.

“Neptune’s investment in the local community and the close bond between team members are some of the things that attracted me most to the role,” says Megan, who is committed to excellence and driven to maintain a people-centric environment. “As a critical gateway to exporting Canadian resources around the world, Neptune plays an important role in both the regional and national economy. I am excited to spend more time at the terminal getting to know my colleagues across all the different parts of the organization.”

Megan intends to continue prioritizing operational excellence and safety, and is very engaged in workplace equity, diversity and inclusion, acting as the co-chair of the Waterfront Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Council. Joining Neptune, she says, she quickly recognized that people are the company’s strength. “Since I’ve started, we’ve run a large United Way campaign, exceeded the Movember targets the team set, and are in full swing raising holiday funds for those in need across the North Shore,” she confirms. “I am looking forward to continued growth of both our team members and the organization in 2024.”
