Wesbrook Talks De Bonis, Victor


Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Back in the ‘80s when the Vancouver Canucks were searching for wins in a tough Smythe Division, Victor de Bonis could be found parking cars at the Pacific Coliseum. After a detour through accounting firm KPMG, de Bonis joined the Canucks operation in 1994, and has since seen various teams and ownerships come and go. Yet through perseverance, relationships and a dedication to winning, over the past two decades, de Bonis has helped turned the franchise into one of the National Hockey League’s most successful franchises. We heard how he got his start, and learn about the challenges he faced and opportunities he seized along the way. Wesbrook Talks is presented by Wesbrook Village and alumni UBC. It is designed to provide intimate opportunities to listen to and engage with prominent alumni in the community. Speaker Bio Victor de Bonis is the Chief Operating Officer for Canucks Sports and Entertainment (CSE), and an Alternate Governor for the NHL. Working in partnership with President of Hockey Operations Trevor Linden, Victor has primary responsibility over all facets of business operations and directs the Senior Leadership Team.
