Doug Enns is “Best in Biz” for adding value & mitigating risk during disruptive times

MEDIA RELEASE – Victoria, BC

Doug Enns, Board Chair of Consumer Protection BC, has been named a winner (silver) in the Chairperson of Year category in Best in Biz Awards 2019 International, an independent global business awards program.

A business consultant, Enns assumed the role of Board Chair in 2014. In this relatively short time, he has maintained a focus on what is best for the provincial regulator now and in the future, shaping conditions that have seen Consumer Protection BC continue to grow as a value-add regulator. His watchful eye to the technological future has ensured the regulator stays relevant and continues to add stakeholder value. A strong strategic leader, Enns also introduced a Principle Areas of Risk framework to anticipate and mitigate risks. “Conditioning the organization to adapt to fast-paced changes requires an accommodating culture that is excited by the prospect of seeking and capturing opportunities,” explains Enns.

Rob Gialloreto, a Chartered Professional in Human Resources and Consumer Protection BC’s President and CEO, also won an award (Silver) for HR Executive of the Year. His people-focused leadership style has had a significant impact on the corporate culture of the organization in a variety of ways, including increases in employee engagement throughout his tenure at Consumer Protection BC. “It’s simple: there is the investment and development of our people, and then there is everything else,” says Gialloreto about his leadership approach. “Over the last few years, our management group has grown together and worked hard to develop themselves. That group is the catalyst to our positive organizational culture, and they are the reason behind any internal or external recognition we receive.”
