Employee Profile – Andrew Miller rarin’ to go on the North Island

andrew-miller2Andrew Miller may be the new Harvest Quality Manager, however, he’s not a new face to either the industry or Marine Harvest and he’s eagerly looking ahead to the varied priorities as he begins his first full month on the job.

Responsible for developing and implementing harvesting policies and procedures and ensuring these operations are conducted to maintain the highest possible product quality, Andrew is involved with all aspect of harvesting, from pre-harvest site preparation through to off-loading at the plant.

“It’s all about continual improvement”, Miller said, from starting with the smaller things that improve efficiency and which have already been implemented to moving onto the larger issues.

Andrew brought to his former position as Operations Support in Quatsino a varied work and educational background. His first aquaculture experience was on a farm in Kyuquot followed by employment with Aqua Sea and the Sterling Carrier as well as post-secondary courses in Environmental Technology at Camosun College. Andrew was hired for a summer as an “at sea observer” with Archipelago Marine Research, an experience that helped him realize that making the transition from school to full-time work was the right choice.

Born north of Montreal, Andrew loves the water and the outdoor life made possible here on the island for him, wife Brooke and their two young children, ages one and three and a half. He also appreciates the friendliness of the Port Hardy community.

“Approach every opportunity in life with enthusiasm, regardless of the outcome and you will learn and grow from the experience” is one of his guiding principles and with such a positive attitude, the sky’s the limit.
