(#30, 2016) PRES­I­DENT & CEO, PORT OF VAN­COU­VER

Prince of Ports The pros­per­ity of our re­gion is in­ex­tri­ca­bly tied to the pros­per­ity of the Port of Van­cou­ver—the third-largest port in North Amer­ica. In his eighth year at the helm, Sil­vester can boast of record-break­ing cargo pass­ing through it (69 mil­lion met­ric tonnes as of mid-year); at the same time, the Van­cou­ver Fraser Port Au­thor­ity re­ceived its rst award from the North Amer­i­can Marine En­vi­ron­ment Pro­tec­tion As­so­ci­a­tion. Still to be dealt with: se­cur­ing more of the Lower Main­land’s rapidly van­ish­ing in­dus­trial land, which is cru­cial for en­sur­ing the re­gion’s on­go­ing eco­nomic vi­a­bil­ity.
