General Manager/Executive Director

 

Marlene Coleman nee Scott

To understand Marlene’s drive, one merely has to look at her past. Marlene completed her first ultra – distance running race in 1996, a 56 mile (90km) race named Comrades Marathon in South Africa. Her next big race was New York Marathon in 2001, followed by competing in the infamous Ironman Canada Triathlon in 2007, and running Boston Marathon in 2010. Many short triathlons, multiple marathons and ironman events have occurred in between as she’s an avid swimmer, runner, and keen cyclist. Marlene participates in the Vancouver to Whistler Gran Fondo each year, representing an Italian cycling club founded in Tuscany, Italy.

Marlene received her strata and rental real estate license in 2008 from the University of British Columbia and added an Advanced Strata Management License from Langara College.

Her competitive nature and extensive education and business experience is the cornerstone to understanding the fundamentals of financial management, budgets, goals and objectives and in providing value to our Club.

Marlene established a sound business foundation at a young age, having founded a candy manufacturing company in South Africa which distributed high end candy products to retail outlets throughout South Africa, Australia and North America. She sold the business and studied to receive her Executive MBA before arriving in Canada in 1998.

Her eye for innovation, business acumen and a commitment to clean principled management has been the key to her leadership and success.
