When asked about his newest appointment, Kory enthusiastically talks about his city and a thriving organization focused on growth. “I am truly honoured to be selected as a Director for Tourism Vancouver and look forward to applying 20 years of technology experience in the leisure tourism space. Vancouver is an internationally recognized iconic city. Our city’s tourism products and services are as diverse as its natural beauty and landscape. I believe Tourism Vancouver has a real opportunity to grow and expand its products and services, and I’m fortunate to have been asked to be a part of that.”

Kory is excited to take on this new role and give back to the local tourism economy that has provided so much opportunity, adventure and quite possibly is the best place in the world to call home.
