On the northern outskirts of Campbell River is the Middlepoint Industrial Park, the location of Marine Harvest Canada’s busiest warehouse. It is the domain of Isaac Desprez, who is responsible for Warehouse and Logistics across the company.

“I like the variety and that the job is ever-changing. It keeps me motivated and my problem-solving skills sharp,” he says.

Isaac’s main responsibility is managing the goods that arrive at the warehouse, ensuring site orders are correct, consolidating freight and making sure that equipment arrives at every Marine Harvest site safely. 

The Middlepoint warehouse stores everything needed for salmon aquaculture in the Campbell River region. He keeps an extensive inventory of equipment including generators, uplift systems, boats, underwater cameras, lighting and feed equipment. Isaac also oversees the transportation of equipment and materials to three other MHC warehouses on Vancouver Island.

“I appreciate the opportunity for growth that this position offers,” explains Isaac, adding that he’s taking supply chain management courses through correspondence.

After graduating from Timberline High School in 2006, Isaac worked at Canadian Tire as a warehouse manager. He left that position to join the team at Marine Harvest.

Isaac was born and raised in Campbell River. He continues to make it his home with his wife who works in a local medical office. He plays golf as much as possible and their four year old German Shepherd Sharpei cross Mickey keeps them both active. They are expecting their first child in November.
