Magnan to spearhead global trade group for Surrey
Bernard Magnan has been hired as the International Trade Manager for the Surrey Board of Trade.
He comes to Surrey from the Vancouver Board of Trade, where he served as Assistant Managing Director and Chief Economist for the past four years.
Magnan will spearhead the board of trade's planned Canada Global Trade Association, which SBOT executive director Anita Huberman said "will strategically build global business connections for local businesses."
She said the association is similar to international trade centres found in Europe, the Middle East and India, where they are common to local business groups there but less so in North America.
Magnan brings over 25 years of national and international experience where he has focused on policy and business development, consulting, project management and people leadership.
