Terri Newell
Vice-President & General Manager

Terri joined Horizon in 1991 after learning about the then worker-owned business through a course project. She holds an M.A. from the UBC School of Community & Regional Planning. Terri has been a member of the Board of Directors of the Horizon Group since 1998 when Horizon was purchased by its current majority shareholder and President, Ron Francisco.


Since joining Horizon, Terri has utilized her natural leadership skills and planning ability to help guide Horizon’s evolution from its rich co-op roots to our position today as the industry leading organic and natural distributor in Western Canada with more than $90 million in annual sales. In 2008 Terri led the project to secure warehouse capacity that would meet the demands of growth for many years to come. She oversaw the intensive design/build process that resulted in the seamless relocation of Horizon operations to our current 150,000 square foot facility in South Burnaby, B.C.


Terri has been an avid soccer player since she was seven years old, and continues to participate today both as a player and as a past member of the Metro Women’s Soccer League Board. When she’s off the field, you’ll find Terri mountain biking the trails of North Vancouver, or at the ice rink with her hockey teammates.
