Alison Berg

Past President

Alison has 20 years of strategic marketing and HR development experience, having worked for early-stage innovators in big data, telecommunications, and high performance computing. She currently is the Director of Marketing at Innovation Boulevard and also runs West10 Marketing and Communications.

Alison has played a change agent role in several of BC’s most innovative start-up technology companies as they transitioned from small 5-person shops to over 100-person companies purchased in some of Canada’s largest acquisitions. Alison has also co-founded a supercomputing startup and a successful e-commerce business; she has worked for several municipal governments in labour and employee relations, and has consulted with numerous organizations on marketing, business development, and HR issues.

She holds an MBA in Marketing, a BA in English, and an HR certificate. Alison is the past president of Soroptimist International of the TriCities, and has served on the board in multiple capacities since she joined in 2005.   She emcees and speaks at public events, and is an active community volunteer, having volunteered with Newton Girls Softball, Homes for Good, Port Moody Soccer and Coquitlam Metro Ford Soccer. A self-confessed book nerd, Alison loves chocolate, wine, Netflix, and her kids (almost always in that order.)
