Dean Selected to Halifax Chamber Board

Robert Dean, Partner at WBLI, has recently been selected to the board of directors of the Halifax Chamber of Commerce.

This isn’t Robert’s first foray into community involvement. He recently completed a judging position at the Innovacorp I3 competition, and has a strong personal philosophy of giving back to the business community.

“I’ve always operated on the principle that in order to truly be a part of the business community, I need to participate and get involved — to contribute to the positive influence that this community has within Halifax,” says Robert. “It’s a principle that seems to be pretty universal. There is a lot of community involvement not only among the people of WBLI, but throughout the industry at large. I think overall, we share a strong sense of wanting to give back to the business community and the region.”

Robert speaks glowingly of the Halifax Chamber of Commerce’s role within the community, highlighting how they fill an important role in the business community, providing businesses both large and small with a cohesive and respected voice — one that has access to the ears of the policymakers whose decisions affect every business in the city and beyond.

“I’m excited to be joining the Chamber. They’re very positive and influential people who are committed and passionate about the business community within Halifax. How can you not want to be a part of that?”

WBLI would like to extend its congratulations to Robert Dean and wishes him every success in this important community role.
