Canadian Business Leaders Celebrated at Vancouver Awards Dinner  

On Thursday, June 1 we hosted a celebratory evening in Vancouver for two of Canada’s most influential business leaders, Ryan Beedie and Karen Flavelle.  The evening was filled with great music, dancing and some sweet treats from Purdys Chocolatier. 

Ryan Beedie, Canadian Business Leader of the Year Honouree

Ryan Beedie, the 2023 Canadian Business Leader of the Year honouree. He was joined last evening by his wife Cindy and his son Trevor.

Karen Flavelle, Canadian Business Leader Lifetime Achievement Honouree

Karen Flavelle, the 2023 Canadian Business Leader Lifetime Achievement Honouree. She was joined last evening by her husband Jamie, her son Scott and her father, Charles.

“I can’t tell you how wonderful it feels to be here celebrating the best of our business community”

Perrin Beatty, CEO, Canadian Chamber of Commerce

Honorees and guests were treated to special performance by world-renowned jazz musician and singer Brian Newman. Splitting his time between touring with Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett and leading his own quartet with his crooner jazz revival and signature expert trumpeting, Newman made our attendees feel as if they are a part of his performance.

To see a list of all our past recipients and to find out more details on our 2023 honorees please visit our Canadian Business Leader Awards page.

We want to thank all the staff at the Fairmont Pacific Rim and all our event sponsors who helped to make the night a great success.
