Darren has been actively involved in FCM since 2007. As a long-time board member, he’s helped drive municipal leadership on resettling Syrian refugees and he’s served as a governance representative for Latin America. In June 2019, he was elected FCM’s Third Vice-President.
He believes strongly in the ability of local leaders to build better lives—whether that’s through better roads and transit, more affordable housing, or more livable, resilient communities. And he knows first-hand that they deliver local, cost-effective solutions to national challenges.
Darren was born in Saskatoon and still lives there with his family. As a former entrepreneur and advertising executive, he’s now the president and CEO of Junior Achievement of Saskatchewan, which teaches young people about entrepreneurship, business and leadership skills.
