“Each year, our association recognizes members and colleagues who have made significant contributions to the success of projects and issues that are important to the region,” says PNWA Executive Director Kristin Meira. “Brian Wolfe’s years of public service as an elected commissioner at the Port of Vancouver are to be commended and celebrated. We’re grateful for the active role he’s played and proud to honor him at our annual convention.”

Commissioner Wolfe has worked passionately since his election in 2005 to support commerce, sustainable development and job creation at the Port of Vancouver and across the region. A longtime advocate for economic development, Wolfe helped found the Columbia River Economic Development Council and served as its board chair from 1983 through 1994.
