William Robinson has been the Maintenance Manager at Neptune for just 10 months, but in that time he’s faced significant challenges to Neptune’s equipment, from extreme heat to extreme cold. He’s also met an incredible community of people, both at work and in his new hometown on the North Shore.
William and his family moved from Jamaica 10 years ago - six years in Labrador and four in Ontario – so he’s become accustomed to cold weather. He’s also familiar with what makes a great team and he knows he’s found it at Neptune. William’s vision for the team is to continue on its trajectory to world-class standards in the way it manages Neptune’s operating equipment, ensuring high reliability of the supply chain.
A huge believer in the power of knowledge and respect, William loves what he’s seen at Neptune so far. “The community engagement initiatives, notably the United Way campaign, are just one example of Neptune’s passion for giving back,” he says. “I’ve definitely landed on my feet, not just at work but where we live. The North Shore trails are incredible and I get out as often as possible. I’m also loving the diverse cuisine available on the West Coast. This is definitely home for my family and me!”
