Executive Director, Dennis Van Staalduinen, Departs from Wellington West BIA

The Board of the Wellington West Business Improvement Area wishes to announce the departure of our Executive Director Dennis Van Staalduinen.

Dennis has asked us to share this statement:

“It has been the pride and joy of my life to work so closely with the local merchants of Hintonburg and Wellington Village over my years with the BIA. And while I am very sad to be parting ways at this time, I thank all my BIA colleagues and collaborators for the incredible opportunity to serve with you. As an area resident, I will always be the biggest supporter and fan of this place, this organization, and the BIA movement worldwide. And I look forward to the next chapter for both myself and my neighbourhood.”

The BIA Board would like to recognize Dennis for his service, and his passion for this community, over the past eighteen years. We acknowledge his important role as a founding organizer behind the establishment of Wellington West BIA in 2008, and we thank him for his past five and a half years of leadership as our Executive Director.

As Board Chair Brian Muzyka, says:

“We are grateful to Dennis for all his hard work through several challenging years of growth and change. We wish him all the best in whatever direction he chooses to go next.”
