I have been self-employed for over 35 years and when I sold my last business I went looking for what was next . One evening I was having dinner with a few business owners I knew and they were discussing the board they were a member of and they kept referring to TAB . It was my first introduction to The Alternative Board . One thing led to another and I ended up visiting their world headquarters in Denver and knew I had found my new home !
There are 9 Boards in the Vancouver ( including the island ) area and I have the pleasure of running the Fraser Valley area and facilitating 2 boards here . One we call The North Fraser Board which serves Coquitlam , Port Coquitlam , Maple Ridge , Port Moody and parts of Burnaby and the other focuses on the Abbotsford , Chilliwack area .
I am fortunate to be able to leverage the skills I’ve gained in my past experiences to use in the TAB world to make a real difference in the companies and the lives of business owners.
Our members include the full spectrum of industries, including professional services, technology, construction, manufacturing and distribution. Our board members range in experience as business owners, from as little as a few years to over 30 . From 3 employees to over 20.
Fostering the relationships between our board members and watching the value they gain from one another on a regular basis is very inspiring. I look forward to every new challenge the TAB members bring me!
