A life-long career in marketing communications, event management, public relations, and government advocacy led Kim to a position on the Nanaimo Chamber Board of Directors, and shortly thereafter to the position of President and Chief Executive Officer.

His many contributions to our community and activity with non-profit organizations, cultural groups, and charities has allowed Kim to build strong relationships that follow diverse paths in the community. Kim’s connections and widespread relationships within the Nanaimo business community has led to many productive collaborations.

Today, Kim is utilizing these experiences to communicate with government, businesses, and the community to enhance opportunities, support a healthy local economy, and create an attractive environment to live, work and play.
