James is the commander of the BC Food & Beverage mothership. As the head of our lean, mean (we aren’t really mean) team James brings nearly 30 years of industry knowledge and experience to our membership. The genuine care James has for each of our members, his team, and the industry is one of the many reasons he is so well respected and admired. His humility, fairness, and down to earth nature make him an exceptional leader in our industry. He is also pretty darn funny. (only if you like dad jokes)
As the COO, Alisa plays a crucial part in making sure our members are receiving access to the best resources and programs. Alisa's open mindedness and contagious smile makes the office a fun and comfortable place to be. We love Alisa's ability to see situations from every perspective. She is awesome!
Sumner is our events and programs uber commander! Large, amazing events, small, spectacular events, fantabulous programs, Sumner is THE leader, planner and executor of all things, fun, fancy, and educational at BCFB. If that wasn’t enough to wow and amaze you, she also happens to bring some super jazzy energy to our team with her laughter, witty sense of humour and sharp style that puts the rest of us to shame. She is the bomb.com.
Christina is our most fabulous Community Manager. As an e-commerce, entrepreneur herself, with a strong customer focused background, she is the perfect person to be the first point of contact for our members and manage all of our digital assets.

We feel pretty lucky to have her as part of our team and give her 5 stars for pure awesomeness!
Kelly is the Queen of all things BC Food & Beverage brand. She is the creative eye behind BC Food & Beverage, making sure our visual brand and story is on point down to the finest of details.
