At one of our recent meetings, we were able to officially welcome our latest members, Kasey Reese and Marcus Wong to our Greater Vancouver Advisory Board. We are proud to have the two of them join us and bring with them a wealth of diverse experience from their respective fields.


Kasey Reese joins us after a 30year career in telecommunications where he worked with TELUS and AT&T. During his career, he had leadership roles in enterprise risk management, internal audit & workforce diversity & inclusion.  

At TELUS he and his team redesigned TELUS’ enterprise risk assessment approach, re-engineered the internal audit processes; established the ethics office & worked collaboratively with stakeholders across the company to help TELUS achieve significant & sustained external recognition for ethics, enterprise risk governance, business community management, diversity and inclusiveness, environmental sustainability and CSR reporting.  

As an openly gay executive, he was a founding member of LGBTQ2+ employee resource groups at both organizations. We are extremely thankful to have Kasey join our team as he brings in his wealth of knowledge and years of professional expertise to The Salvation Army.
