Kicking Off the Welcome Reception in High Gear
with Craig Richmond, President & CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority
A key link in the multimodal supply chain will be featured at the Welcome Reception at this year’s event.
The CLC18 Welcome Reception keynote remarks will be made by Craig Richmond, President & CEO of Vancouver Airport Authority (YVR) – the driving force behind an award-winning airport with his strong aviation background spanning diverse roles, which include serving at home and abroad as a pilot for the Royal Canadian Air Force, over a decade of pivotal operational roles at YVR and positions with Vantage Airport Group as CEO of six airports in three countries.
Since rejoining YVR as President & CEO in 2013, Mr. Richmond has overseen the airport’s vision to become a world-class sustainable connecting hub that links Asia to the Americas. Under Mr. Richmond’s leadership, YVR has grown at one of the fastest rates in Canada—having welcomed a record 22.3 million passengers in 2016 and $10 billion in cargo at Canada’s second largest airport.
Vancouver Airport Authority is a founding supporter of Cargo Logistics Canada Expo + Conference and was consultative on the show’s initial strategy, including the need for a truly multimodal show that brings air, sea, surface cargo supply chains together to discuss, buy, sell, and learn from each other for two and a half days.
