VCN Announces new Executive Director

The Directors of the Vancouver Community Network (VCN) are very pleased to announce the appointment of Tracey Axelsson as Executive Director.  This is a new position created after a lengthy consultation process. We are confident that Tracey's involvement will help VCN to accomplish its mission; making the full benefits of the internet available for everyone.

As social entrepreneur and business builder, Tracey has a strong focus on sustainable operations, communications, public relations, client relationship management, business development strategy, and branding.  She is a proven innovator and the mastermind behind the creation of the first car sharing organization in the English-speaking world – MODO – Vancouver's car co-op.

Tracey has great depth and capacity around taking an idea from 'unheard of' to positive uptake and success.  She is excited to be lending her knowledge and experience to work on the vital social challenge of bridging the digital divide.

Tracey was named one of BC's "Top 40 under 40" by Business in Vancouver and was honoured with a YWCA Women of Distinction Award. Shared Vision Magazine has recognized her as a "Visionary" while LiveSmart BC named Tracey as a Community Hero.

I hope you all join me in welcoming her to the VCN Team!
