What do you do?
In 2018, I accepted the role of Chairman of the Board at Mutual Fire Insurance. I enjoy interacting with the talented staff and management team and look forward to helping the company achieve our strategic initiatives.
What’s your career background?
I am a business lawyer and managing partner in a medium sized law firm in Surrey. I have an undergraduate degree from Trinity Western University and a law degree from the University of British Columbia.
What community initiative are you most passionate about and why?
I serve on the Board of Directors of Elim Housing Society, a Christian seniors housing organization that operates a full aging in place campus of care senior’s village in Surrey, BC and is expanding into Chilliwack, BC. I have been actively involved with local and federal politics and am currently serving as a director of the Langley-Aldergrove Electoral District Association for the Conservative Party of Canada. I also serve as a director on the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association where my office is located.
What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
When I’m not working as a lawyer or attending to the business of running a law firm, I spend as much time as possible on my bicycle exploring the country roads of the Fraser Valley and riding annually in the Whistler Gran Fondo. My wife Inga and I also enjoy spending time with our big family.
