Hector Bremner is the only candidate with Vancouver City council experience running for Mayor, and is Yes Vancouver’s founding mayoral candidate.
Councillor Bremner’s life and career have been marked by recognizing good ideas, getting things done, and bringing people together. He feels blessed to be able to serve all communities across our great city and promises to citizens that he will get the job done.
After a successful career in business development and operations management with some of Canada’s largest brands, Hector founded TOUCH Marketing located in Vancouver in 2007, whose innovative marketing, communications, and project management strategies earned him a strong reputation for delivering results.
This drew the attention of leading businesses and non-profit organizations looking for winning strategies to communicate their messages and achieve their goals, and ultimately brought him into the uniquely challenging world of provincial politics.
In 2013, Bremner was appointed by the provincial government to serve with the Ministry of International Trade, Ministry of Tourism and Small Business, as well as the Ministry of Natural Gas Development and Deputy Premier’s Office.
Councillor Hector Bremner was elected to Vancouver City Council in a 2017 by-election.
Councillor Bremner’s board and non-profit related experience also includes:
- Fundraising for the Canadian Olympic Committee
- Board Director of the BC Senior Services Society
- Board Director of the Vancouver Biennale
- Cabinet Member, A Night of Miracles, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation
As a father and a husband, Hector Bremner strives to lead by example and never shy away from doing what is right.
He and his wife Virginia are dedicated to fixing the housing crisis facing Vancouver because, like so many Vancouverites, they care that their boys, who were born in Vancouver, won’t be able to make a life in our city unless something is done now.
