Hi, I'm Dennis Marsden
WHERE I COME FROM
Hello, I’m proud to call Coquitlam home since 1979. I grew up, went to school here and for over 25 years, I worked to provide financial services for local families and businesses. As a Branch Manager with two of the largest credit unions in BC, I led teams to achieve top results in customer service and growth. Since retiring from banking, I have served you and our city on Council for 8 years, using my financial background and concern for community to solve complex problems and manage our resources.
SERVING MY COMMUNITY
I’ve served our community since my teenage years in a number of areas including;
Treasurer Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation (8 years)
President Tri Cities Chamber of Commerce (4 years)
Board of Director BC Chamber of Commerce (1 year)
Hockey referee (20 years)
Hockey coach for both minor and Sr women (3 years)
Coquitlam Little League coach (5 years)
Coquitlam Metro Ford Soccer coach (10 years)
I am now a business consultant, specializing in networking, policy development and advocacy for a range of clients ranging from environmental services to childcare to international logistics.
Coquitlam is my home. I live and work here
My wife Lisa and I have raised our two kids here over the past 25 years and we live and work here and we want to ensure that all children have the opportunity to grow up in safe neighbourhoods, with numerous options for sports, jobs and arts activities along with a multitude of job opportunities for them and ourselves.
