The current market headwinds seem to be "Welcoming us to the Jungle." VMG’s 2023 issue demonstrates a similar ideology as well.
This year, we had the privilege to sit down with Josh Gaglardi, President of Orion Construction, the fastest-growing company in Canada along with Anita Huberman, CEO of Surrey Board of Trade, and Chuck Goddard, Director of Planning for the city of Maple Ridge. We also had the honor of chatting with the newly elected mayor of Surrey - Brenda Locke. She gave us insight into how she plans to restore transparency and credibility to the Surrey City Council.
