Barry Kyle, Chair of the Belledune Port Authority Board of Directors and Rayburn Doucett, President & CEO, are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Denis Caron as the new CEO of the Belledune Port Authority (BPA).
“I am delighted that Denis has agreed to lead the Belledune Port Authority “says Barry Kyle.
Denis brings more than 30 years of public service and community development experience. He has held many roles in government at municipal, provincial and federal levels including Deputy Minister of Local Government and Environment and most recently as Deputy Minister of Economic Development, with leadership responsibilities for the Regional Development Corporation; Agriculture, Aquaculture and Fisheries, InvestNB; and the Provincial Jobs Board.
“Both Rayburn and I are confident that Denis has the ability to connect vision and strategy into even further world-class execution and the leadership to drive the BPA’s success for the next chapter. ”
Denis will join the Port in October 2015 and officially take over the CEO role in January 2016 upon Rayburn’s retirement. He is looking forward to returning home to northern New Brunswick after being away for more than 20 years.
On this topic, I take this opportunity to sincerely thank Rayburn Doucett, as he relinquishes his role as President & CEO at year end, for his perseverance and total dedication to the Port of Belledune over the course of the last 10 years. Under his leadership, the port has flourished. With a continuous eye on the bigger picture, Rayburn’s vision for the future of the Port never wavered – “Belledune…Unlimited!” truly was his motto. On behalf of the entire BPA team, past and present, Rayburn we thank you for your perseverance and total dedication to the Port of Belledune. You have been without a doubt the fundamental ingredient to our success. We know you will continue to be a true ambassador of the Port of Belledune and the region as a whole and wish you continued success in all your future endeavors.
Rayburn also agrees that the Port of Belledune is very fortunate to have recruited such an ideal candidate: “As I relinquish my role as President & CEO of the Belledune Port Authority, I am truly excited about the Port’s future and extend my very best wishes to my successor Mr. Denis Caron who is very fortunate to lead this great team to an even better and greater future. Here’s to the next 10 years of the Belledune Port Authority as we imagine, believe and execute our goals as Belledune…Unlimited!” says Rayburn Doucett, President & CEO, Belledune Port Authority.
