#RichardsonIs introduces you to some of the great people who work for our company and showcases the diversity of career options in agriculture.

This week, #RichardsonIs…Gerry, Director, Terminal Operations at our Thunder Bay, Ontario port terminal.

His Role: As Director, Terminal Operations, Gerry oversees the process of receiving and unloading grain by rail that arrives from the Prairies to Richardson’s terminal on Lake Superior, where it is loaded onto ships destined overseas for international customers. Gerry also ensures that the customer’s expectations for quality and delivery are always met.

Favourite Part of the Job: “It’s the people that I get to work with on a daily basis that make this work so rewarding.  That includes everyone from our staff here in Thunder Bay to the team in Winnipeg, the Richardson Pioneer network as well as our other terminal locations. Over the course of my 39 years with this company, I’ve been fortunate to have built strong relationships with the railroad and shipping personnel, third-party shippers and everyone in between.”

Why Gerry Recommends a Career in Ag: “A career in agriculture is so unique because it offers endless opportunities to learn, develop and be creative. The possibilities for someone looking to work in this industry are really quite endless. From research to agronomy, sales and marketing, logistics and transportation, food safety and quality assurance…I could go on!”

Out of Office: When Gerry’s not at the terminal, his time is often spent serving on several community and industry committees as well as volunteering with the United Way. He loves to garden, travel and especially spoil his granddaughter.
