Janet Holder has passed away following a lengthy battle with leukemia. A native of Prince George, Holder was appointed as the Enbridge Executive Vice President of Western Access in September 2011. That’s when she assumed the leadership of Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway project. It also allowed her to return to her hometown.
On multiple occasions, Holder was named to the Women’s Executive Network’s list of Canada’s Most Powerful 100 Women. She retired from Enbridge last year after more than 20 years, to focus on her family and her health.
In a statement prepared yesterday, Enbridge President and CEO Al Monaco said “Janet will be dearly missed by everyone at Enbridge. In addition to Janet’s many personal and professional achievements, she exemplified our values of integrity and respect. She had a passion to serve and mentor others, and an amazing way of connecting with people.”
