Honorary chair and co-founder of Colliers International, John McLernon, is heading to the B.C. Hall of Fame. He will be inducted into the Business Laureates of British Columbia (BLBC) Hall of Fame at the 12th Annual Gala Dinner and Induction Ceremonies taking place on May 24, 2017 at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.
BCLC recognizes inductees for their “outstanding business achievements, enduring contributions to the province and country, as well as deep commitments to diverse and niche communities”.
Aside from McLernon’s significant work with Colliers International, he currently serves as chair of A&W Revenue Royalties Income Fund, City Office REIT and Village Farms International. He also lends his experience and expertise in a director and advisor capacity to private companies such as Canadian Urban Limited and the Mark Anthony Group, as well as to non-profit organizations.
McLernon’s advocacy for Vancouver’s homeless population through his involvement with StreetoHome Foundation has earned him two Queen Elizabeth Jubilee Medals and the Province of BC Community Achievement Award.
The Business Laureates of British Columbia (BLBC) Hall of Fame was created by JA British Columbia (JABC) in 2005 to honour the outstanding B.C. business leaders whose efforts have shaped our province and country. The Hall of Fame stands as a testament to the positive legacy the Laureates provide to the youth of British Columbia. Laureates have demonstrated a level of Vision, Leadership, Integrity and Legacy unique among their peers. s head
