MEET THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
When not designing and building homes for the rich and famous Russell manages to find the time to give something back to the city that has been very good to him.
1958 – 2015
It is with great sadness that we bid goodbye to our dear friend Derek Trethewey. Derek was a founding director of Face The World Foundation and his philanthropy and commitment to community service is renowned. As President & CEO of Okanagan Land Development Corporation he was involved in award winning development projects around the world. But his greatest legacy may be the impact he made to his friends and family. He was a force larger than life. He lived authentically, according to his own nature. He uplifted everyone around him and his generosity knew no bounds. The world is a quieter place without him.
Glenn was an integral force behind Face The World Foundation from the very beginning. Willing and able to do all the heavy lifting, whether it be lending his marketing brilliance to our philanthropic efforts or flying to Calgary to ensure Mr. Tom Jones arrived on time, Glenn was a man with a generous spirt. He was most at home on the slopes of Whistler, where he was pivotal in developing the art of freestyle skiing. He was a man with big ideas and his contagious laugh will be forever missed.
