A pair of appointments to the Prince Rupert Port Authority were announced in Ottawa on Monday, June 10.
Rita Andreone, from North Vancouver, and Kenneth Clayton, from Delta, were each appointed as directors to the port authority for a three-year term.
Andreone is an alumni of the University of Victoria law school, and received the Queen’s counsel designation in 2011 for her work in the legal field. She will be replacing Bruce Hallsor, whose term recently concluded.
“Her experience in corporate governance will be an invaluable addition to our governance team as the port continues to realize its vision of strategic growth and diversification,” Shaun Stevenson said in a statement upon Andreone’s hire.
Clayton renews his role in the organization, having served as a director since 2014.
“I am pleased to announce that these highly qualified Canadians have agreed to serve in the transportation sector,” Transport Minister Marc Garneau said in a press release. “Their appointments, which follow our open, transparent and merit-based appointment process, will ensure continued good governance. I wish to thank outgoing board members for their valuable service.”
