Kristi Super, Executive Assistant to Managing Director Vincent Erenst, brings thoroughness and friendliness to her job every day. Her position supports Vincent and the entire Senior Management Team with their weekly meetings, travel arrangements, and correspondence needs as well as coordinating insurance claims and renewals.
“I love working in an industry that I feel passionate about. I have faith in the people I work with, and I eat farmed salmon as often as I can,” she said, adding that she invites anybody who comes into the office to stop by her desk and say “hi”.
Born in the Lower Mainland of Vancouver, Kristi lived her early life in Campbell River and returned again in 1996, after living several years in the Fraser Valley area, when she met her husband who is a log scaler for Western Forest Products. They have four kids, ranging in age from 9 to 18.
After starting her office administration career in the heavy equipment industry, Kristi worked as a receptionist for Liard Aquaculture in 2000, which was purchased by Omega Salmon Group. She did bookkeeping for Pan Fish’s US sites and then moved into the Environmental and Licensing department in 2005. “I coordinated internal compliance visits, audited sites, and maintained all the necessary record keeping. I’ve been in my current position since 2007,” explained Kristi.
Kristi’s kids play hockey and three years ago, she saw a poster for women’s hockey at the arena. As a lifelong hockey lover, and loyal Canucks fan, she had wanted to play since she was a kid, so she joined on the spot. In the spring and summer months, she can be found most weekends at a ball field or camping and fishing with her family and two dogs, active German Shorthair Pointers who round out the canine contingent of the clan.
Kristi also appreciates quieter pursuits. “I love to read and whether it’s fiction or non-fiction, I enjoy it all. I’m also a big fan of jig-saw puzzles. The largest one I‘ve tackled is 2,500 pieces”.
