VANCOUVER, B.C. — The Transition Committee responsible for the amalgamation of the Fraser River, North Fraser and Vancouver Port Authorities, has named Captain Gordon Houston as Transition CEO for the proposed Vancouver Fraser Port Authority VFPA.

The Transition CEO will report to the Transition Committee and is a newly created role to guide the formation of the proposed VFPA, including the selection of the executive team.

“This announcement represents a significant milestone in the transition process,” said Sarah Morgan-Silvester, chair of the Amalgamation Transition Committee. “Our three port authorities continue to work together to prepare for amalgamation and the tremendous opportunity this brings for Canada’s Pacific Gateway.”

The CEOs of the three lower mainland port authorities will continue to lead operations of their respective organizations until the date of amalgamation.
