What Virginia Greene does best is to bring ideas and people together to advance community initiatives that are important to us all. Two organizations that have benefited greatly from Virginia’s bold and innovative leadership are the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Street – to – Home Foundation, a Vancouver-based project designed to address homelessness. Throughout her career as a successful entrepreneur, later as a dedicated public servant, and now as President and CEO of the Business Council of BC, Virginia has always focused on making our province immeasurably better. From the Salvation Army to the Vancouver International Film Festival, the Vancouver Convention Centre Expansion Project and mentoring young business professionals, Virginia is that rare individual in our community who is an extraordinary leader.
