Our Community Ambassadors

Making our Community Stronger

The real essence of every community is the active participation and engagement of its members. FEX Ambassadors are an organized, dedicated and passionate group of members providing active leadership for our communities across Canada.

We’d like to thank and acknowledge our abassadors for being a trusted point of contact for our family business community. They believe in the positive impact our community brings to business families and FEAs, and they’re open to share that passion with you.

As a family business owner, I believe it is hugely important to be able to connect with other family business members. We need a space to share ideas, explore the unique challenges and issues family businesses face, and support one another. This is why I decided to become an FEX Ambassador.

It has been a privilege for me to share the Ali Family story through the platforms that FEX offers. My goal as a member and now as an Ambassador, has always been to drive intentional and purposeful communication within the FEX network to help each other.
