Ron’s extensive background in finance and passion for business has allowed him to achieve an impressive streak of corporate transformations in the service, tourism and accommodations sector. Successfully owning and operating businesses for over 20 years has allowed Ron many opportunities, and he has found great personal pleasure in giving back to communities.
Ron volunteered his time and resources to Thompson Rivers University (TRU) since the year 2000 where he took delegates from TRU to India to promote the university to Indian students. At this time there were only five students from India attending TRU; today there are more than 1,250 students contributing over $50 million per year to the community. For seven years Ron was a director of the TRU Community Trust Board where he provided industry advice regarding expansion and direction for the university.
From 2016-2018 Ron was invited to sit on the PavCo Board of British Columbia as a director to assist in making economical decisions for BC Place and Vancouver Convention Centre that would maximize profits and community enjoyment. He was also invited to sit on the official panel in 2017 to review the Board of Directors for the First West Credit Union. In 2018 and 2019 Ron was invited to sit on the panel for the Western Canadian Lodging Conference.
With plentiful industry experience, an enthusiastic outlook, and an interest in growth in the hospitality industry, Ron feels confident that he is a valuable asset in transforming businesses in difficult situations and increasing their value.
