BC Ferries announces new president and CEO

BC Ferries appointed a new president and CEO on Friday morning.

Mark Collins will take over the role from the outgoing Mike Corrigan, who has been the company’s president since 2012.

“As a person who was born in Newfoundland, a ferry dependant island, I understand first-hand the importance of a reliable ferry service to people’s lives,” said Collins. “I’m fortunate to have such a solid foundation on which to start my new role as president and CEO.”

Corrigan’s last day will be March 31st, 2017, and Collins will step into the role the very next day, on April 1st.
