PFM Executive Search in Vancouver, BC is excited to announce that Chris Heine has been selected as the new Vice President, Strategic Investment with Metro Vancouver.
Chris has spent nearly 10 years working in international investment and trade for the federal and provincial governments. Most recently, he was a liaison between Global Affairs Canada and the B.C. government, as well as the geographic lead for Korean-market-related bilateral initiatives, government visits and stakeholder engagement. Chris will build and lead the service’s strategic investment team and program, plus develop protocols while working closely with economic development leaders from member jurisdictions.
He will also be charged with integrating the strategic investment attraction program into the service’s two other areas of focus: data, research and policy, and regional collaboration around Metro Vancouver’s broader economic development priorities.
Chris’s expertise in international investment promotion and attraction, familiarity with government programs and regulatory processes, and the strategic alliances and partnerships he has nurtured will help advance regional priorities, such as: demand-side capacity building within our region’s key industry clusters, increasing global connectedness, opening new markets and attracting high-value foreign investments into industries in which our region has deep specialization and productive advantages. Chris began his new role with Metro Vancouver July 12th, 2021. Congratulations on your new role Chris.
