Welcome Dale Gann

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Dale Gann as the university’s new Director, Business Development. Dale comes to us with over 18 years of executive experience in the high tech sector, including his role as the founding member and first president of the Canadian Association of University Research Parks. Most recently, Dale was the Director of Business Development at Ecoasis Development. Other positions Dale has held include president of the University of Victoria’s Vancouver Island Technology Park and the Marine Technology Centre, and Manager, Business Development for International Technology Integration. 

Dale is also actively involved in the community, participating on a variety of committees and boards, and continually strives to develop our local economy, most recently through his involvement in federal politics. Dale was born and raised in Victoria and lives with his partner Connie and three children.

Dale’s experience in business development, relationship building and community engagement will be assets in this new role and will help him explore and identify new business opportunities aligned with the university’s strategic direction. 

Dale’s first day will be February 14, 2017. Please join me in welcoming him to the Royal Roads community.
