We’re excited to announce that Craig Richmond has been recognized by Business in Vancouver as a CEO of the year for their annual BC CEO Awards. Craig is the recipient for CEO of the year in the not-for-profit category and is one of six winners for the 2019 awards.
Beyond this, Craig champions diversity and accessibility across the organization. Craig is the Chair of the President’s Group, a voluntary team that encourages businesses in B.C. to employ persons with disabilities. He has worked with his team to develop specific hiring targets for underrepresented groups – women, aboriginal people, persons with disabilities and visible minorities. In 2018, YVR received the Accessibility Certified Gold rating under the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification program, the first airport in North America to receive the rating and the highest-rated building in the program.
