John Vickerstaff, CAIB


Over his 20-year career as a leader in sales and marketing, John has held senior and executive positions with multinational industry leaders including The Pacific Newspaper Group (publishers of The Vancouver Sun and The Province). John holds a BA in Economics and Business from Simon Fraser University and currently serves on several local boards including his current role as Governor of the Better Business Bureau for BC. With John now in the insurance industry, he sees this career path as a return to his roots, stating, “I grew up beside the insurance industry and have actively maintained contacts and relationships. It’s like coming home.” John looks forward to putting his complete focus on the Insurance Industry and the growth and success of Network.

A father of three, John enjoys the challange of managing the balance of work and family. Summers weekends are spent as a boat driver, dragging the kids around Sakinaw Lake on the Sunshine Coast. Winters are all about stealing a weekend or two with his family; away from work, school, kid’s hockey and club volleyball and skiing at their family cabin in Big White. John believes BC’s West Coast lifestyle is about blending a passion for your work and family with the best backyard in the world.
