Okanagan Young Professionals Collective Officer
Drew moved to Kelowna in 2013 to finish his business degree at Okanagan College after several years working in various industries. For 3 years, he served as President for Enactus, a non-profit student run organization that develops and implements projects in the community that improve the quality of life across the region. Drew’s dedication to leadership, social change and entrepreneurship led to his being named one of the most influential people at Okanagan College over the past 50 years.
After graduating school Drew worked with Okanagan start-ups doing strategic planning, marketing strategy and project management. While with Soil Mate, he helped define their market and developed strategies that later went on to win BC Innovation Council’s best new business concept. Drew then spent time with Mathtoons Media, helping them create persona driven marketing strategies and organize operational management processes while taking on a junior project management capacity. In 2014 Drew was named one of Kelowna’s Top 40 under 40.
Drew is passionate about youth initiatives, social enterprise and sustainability across the region. He is looking forward to connecting with the community and addressing the needs of young professionals in a very direct and tangible way.
