EXPERIENCE IN CYCLING AND VOLUNTEER COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS

Albeit new to cycling, I have developed a strong interest in road cycling. I took up cycling 3 years ago with an ambition to participate in the Whistler Gran Fondo and looking forward to September 10, 2022. I am a keen sportsman, and my next challenge is to effectively engage in cycling and the cycling community. My goal is to participate in the Victoria Ironman 70.3 in the near future, having taken part and volunteered in a number of marathons. In the short time I have served in the capacity of a Cycling BC interim Board Director, I gained an appreciation of the magnitude of the challenge and opportunities for our sport and intend to continue supporting the sport in the same capacity.

ORGANIZATIONAL MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCE

As a Finance and Risk (Enterprise & Operational) Management professional, I bring a diverse and unique perspective to organizational management. I bring management experience from organizations in different industries including banking, telecommunications, and insurance.

As the strategic planning and financial analysis leader for strategic initiatives at Pacific Blue Cross, I have a profound understanding of delivering enterprise and business value. I currently direct the strategic and operational planning of a $1.6B income statement, managing all activities and stakeholders in the planning process.

My experiences from serving on non-profit boards as a Board Director including BC211 and PBC Health Foundation effectively position me to provide perspectives on the strategic direction Cycling BC should take. As a past Treasurer and Finance Committee Chair, I have a full understanding of effective governance, financial stewardship and the need for sound business planning. I am an MBA graduate and qualified CPA.

HOW DO YOU THINK YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE TO CYCLING BC’s BOARD OF DIRECTORS?

I have 3 primary skills to bring into the role of Cycling BC Board Director.

  1. Financial Management – being a Chartered Certified Accountant and Chartered Professional accountant, I bring over a decade of financial management and accounting experience from start-ups to multinational corporations applicable to Cycling BC.
  2. Strategic Planning – over the last 5 years, I have led strategic and operational planning functions in the private and public sectors, which helps me bring an open-minded but practical approach to the direction Cycling BC should pursue.
  3. Risk Management – I have led both enterprise risk and operational risk management programs, building policies, processes, and frameworks to foster effective risk management practices.

EXPERIENCE AREAS (as per the Cycling BC wheel above):

  • Board Experience
  • Accounting / Finance
  • Risk Management
