Encorp Pacific (Canada)

Vancouver, B.C.

Posted Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018

Encorp Pacific (Canada) (“Encorp”) is the not-for-profit stewardship corporation that manages the recycling of used beverage containers and other designated materials in British Columbia – and has cash flow in excess of $100 million. Having beverage container management as its core business, Encorp administers a consumer friendly and cost-effective system to recover recyclable products from B.C. residents, and ensures that they are diverted from landfills or incinerators. In 2016 Encorp recycled over one billion beverage containers through its network of 176 depots representing a 78% recovery rate.

Due to the current President & CEO’s resignation to pursue other career challenges, Encorp’s Board of Directors is seeking an experienced and progressive executive leader from a business with multiple stakeholders. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the President & Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will be responsible for providing leadership, general supervision, and management of the operations of Encorp on a day to day basis in accordance with the strategies, plans and policies approved by the Board. In collaboration with the Board, the new CEO will develop strategies to ensure the ongoing success of Encorp in its dynamic industry, including maintaining a recovery rate above mandate, and manage relationships with the corporation’s numerous stakeholders.

The successful candidate will bring experience in a senior leadership capacity in a complex industry involving extensive government and stakeholder relations, ideally with some connections or parallels to the beverage industry. Future-oriented with solid strategic thinking skills, candidates will also bring some operational expertise and be excited about the prospect of bettering British Columbia’s environment through leading edge, and responsible product stewardship programs.
