Rick LeLacheur is the newly appointed team president of the BC Lions. Prior to joining the team, Rick spent nearly a decade as president and CEO of the Edmonton Eskimos, where he assisted his team in winning two Grey Cup championships.
Rick’s interest in sports came at a young age, where he spent his youth playing hockey for the Edmonton Oil Kings. He eventually tied up his skates and joined his family venture, the Western Moving and Storage, in 1967. In 1982, Rick was appointed president and served in the position until the company was sold in 1992.
He later served as president and CEO of the Economic Development Edmonton (EDE), where he successfully aided Edmonton in winning the bid to host the 2001 World Championships in Athletics. Rick continued to make significant contributions to the Canadian business landscape by serving on the board of various organizations, including the Alberta Economic Development Authority, TELUS Corporation and Travel Alberta.
We are honoured to have Rick Lelacheur share his wealth of experience with us and to explore the significance of “Branding in the Community”.
