Description

Together with our venue partner Bow Valley College, we invite you to join us to celebrate Small Business Week in Alberta.

Let's celebrate, connect, share, and learn during this unique lunch presentation, a conversation with Wayne Chiu. He will share the story of his entrepreneurial journey.

Wayne Chiu is the founder and CEO of Trico Developments Corporation and Trico Homes. Mr. Chiu, a Mechanical Engineering graduate from the University of Manitoba and qualified master builder continues to be active in all aspects of strategic land development and investment. Under Mr. Chiu’s leadership, Trico Homes has grown and developed into one of Calgary’s Top 5 Builders.

Wayne’s corporate and entrepreneurial acumen have reinforced his desire to support the communities that have contributed to his success and to promote and practice the concept of doing well and doing good. In 2008, Wayne and his wife and business partner, Eleanor, founded the Trico Charitable Foundation as a way to combine their passion for entrepreneurship and a keen awareness of the need for creative solutions to ensure sustainability in the non-profit sector.

In addition to his passion for engendering social change, Wayne Chiu is ardent about supporting lifelong, accessible learning. He served as a member of the board of directors of Calgary’s Bow Valley College for eight years. In 2014, Mr. Chiu put forth $3 million towards that belief in the largest donation ever for the college, which resulted in the institution renaming its School of Business after him.

Mr. Chiu holds an Institute Certified Director Designation and has extensive board governance expertise in both the public sector and business community. He also served on of the Board of Directors and the Audit & Finance Committee of Resverlogix Corporation, a leading biotechnology company engaged in the development of novel therapies for important global medical markets; and the United Way of Calgary, the Libin Foundation, the Calgary Stampede Foundation and the Telus Community Boards. Chiu also served as advisor of various for-profit and non-profit organizations.

Mr. Chiu has been recognized with numerous awards, most recently being appointed as Member of the Alberta Order of Excellence, to be inducted in October of 2018. He is also a Member of the Order of Canada, a Canadian national order within Canada’s honours system, and one of our country’s highest civilian honours. Wayne has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and graced with the Alberta Centennial Award. Other awards of note are the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of Year Award, the CASE Community College Benefactor Award, the Immigrant of Distinction Award, the Generosity of Spirit Award, and the Calgary Citizenship Award.
