Meet Paul Geyer, SVP Vancouver Board Chair from 2014-2017. Paul and his wife Nicole have been SVP Partners since 2008, and are both very engaged at an organizational level and with our Investees.
Paul’s best SVP moment was partnering with the BPS Wealth Management Group and receiving a $500,000 anonymous donation to SVP – both of which were external validation and leveraging for SVP to have greater impact.
3 things you didn’t know about me…
- I grew up down the street from Wayne Gretzky in Brantford, Ontario
- I finished high school in Ontario a year early, bought a VW van came out west and was living out of the van for a year in Vancouver, Whistler and the California coast, teaching windsurfing and skiing
- I was going to go to the University of Waterloo for Engineering, but changed my mind and went to UBC because of the windsurfing and skiing in Vancouver – and the girl to guy ratio was way better at UBC vs Waterloo (1:1 vs 1:4)
