Prince Rupert business leader Glen Saunders is a driving force in his community spearheading tourism initiatives and encouraging civic pride. When Glen calls, you respond by saying ‘yes’…I will help you’. He has inspired hundreds of volunteers to join him in the revitalization of the city’s downtown. It started with his vision for beautifying the Cow Bay waterfront, creating a retail hub out of an industrial area. Recently it was the ‘Paint Prince Rupert Forward’ campaign that saw 25 businesses being repainted by an army of weekend volunteers. Glen has served on the Tourism Prince Rupert Board and was instrumental in a group encouraging cruise ships to visit the area. Glen reflects a ‘can-do’ attitude and a commitment to the future.
