The British Columbia Ferry Services Board has appointed Jill Sharland as Interim President and CEO of BC Ferries, effective today following the dismissal of Mark Collins. The announcement comes from the newly appointed chair, Joy MacPhail who states, “Like many organizations, BC Ferries has faced recent staffing shortages, service interruptions and COVID-related challenges. There are no quick fixes to these systemic challenges but as a board, we believe it is time for renewal, fresh ideas and a renewed commitment to the highest standards of customer service, safety and affordability.” Ms. Sharland is a senior finance and operations executive who is currently Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at BC Ferries. She will continue to fulfill her duties as CFO as she leads the company in the delivery of safe, reliable and affordable ferry service to coastal British Columbia. A robust and professional search to select the company’s permanent CEO will soon be launched.
