OUR CORE VALUES
Howie Reimer has joined the KCBIA as its Executive Director. During the Canada Summer Games In 1993, he moved his young family to Kamloops from Vancouver for a broadcasting opportunity, with the intent of moving on in short order to advance his career. Kamloops had other ideas.
“The community and lifestyle are just perfect for raising a family, and as the charm of the city took hold, so did our roots,” says Reimer.
With relationships forged across business levels and government, other non-profits and institutions, Howie feels the Executive Director role is a good fit.
“I’m honoured to be representing downtown Kamloops,” Reimer adds. “I believe it is the heartbeat of our city. With robust investment and development, particularly over the past two-plus years, I see only growth and excitement for not only downtown, but all of Kamloops.”
