B.C. Ferries’ new president and chief executive is Nicolas Jimenez, who is leaving Insurance Corp. of B.C. after 20 years.
The move to B.C. Ferries will see Jimenez, now president and chief executive at ICBC, again working with Joy MacPhail. MacPhail is the board chair at B.C. Ferries and earlier served as chair of the board of ICBC.
Jimenez led ICBC through its restructuring to bring in no-fault “enhanced care” auto insurance.
He leaves ICBC on Feb. 3 and joins B.C. Ferries on March 6.
Jimenez won the job at B.C. Ferries following an international executive search.
“Nicolas Jimenez is the right leader at the right time for B.C. Ferries,” MacPhail said Tuesday.
“He is a change leader with a proven track record of success. He is customer-focused with a deep commitment to financial accountability and rate affordability.”
He holds as master’s degree in public administration from both Harvard University and the University of Victoria.
