One of our newest veteran recruits is Stewart Campbell whose more than 20 years in the Canadian Armed Forces prepared him well for a career at TransCanada.

Stewart Campbell joined the roster of Canadians being honoured in 2013 with the new Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for lifetime contributions, achievements or service to his country. In Campbell’s case, he earned medals on all three accounts.

Stewart served his country for 17 years as an Army Logistics Supply Chain officer with the Canadian Armed Forces and supported Operations, either as “boots on the ground” or as domestic operational support from Canada, all over the world, including Germany, the First Gulf War, Cambodia, Bosnia, Darfur, Haiti, and Rwanda.

After he retired from the military in 1997, he launched a career in the corporate world, where he quickly rose to executive level positions, but still looked for ways that he could continue to improve the lives of others. For 15 years, he has been working with his former military colleagues on a project called “A Leg Up,” which is a fundraising program to buy specialized high quality prosthetic limbs for injured military soldiers.

Today, Stewart is a manager in Supply Chain at TransCanada. Stewart was attracted to our reputation for excellence in the work that we do and our strong sense of community and willingness to support veterans.
