Craig 2

Craig joined Neptune in July 2021 and oversees Neptune operations, including integration with the safety and maintenance teams. He was previously with Neptune shareholder Teck Resources for 18 years, leading logistics for their steelmaking coal business.

“Knowing the people, and being invested in the work, made the decision to move to Neptune easier,” Craig says. “What really gets me excited though, is being able to execute solutions and strategy on an integrated, ongoing basis as part of a highly functional team at Neptune.” With a growing team, Craig’s experience and expertise will help make Neptune an even more efficient and productive terminal. Craig was awarded the Supply Chain Executive of the year in 2015 by the Freight Management Association of Canada.

A lifelong learner, Craig will receive his MBA from SFU’s Beedie School of Business this June. He’s already applying his learning to the ongoing digital transformation happening at the terminal. The use of Artificial Intelligence and live data is informing trends and improving process decisions, something he is passionate about developing.

When not at the terminal, Craig can often be found at his summer home in the Okanagan with his wife and family, wine tasting or hitting the links.
