Galloway started his career as a journalist before moving into public affairs, working across the country for Canadian airlines, RBC Financial Group, Calgary and Edmonton Valley Zoos and the Calgary Stampede, among other brands. He has also served on the board of Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums since 2015, and is the outgoing board chair.
He will start his leadership position at Heritage Park Society on Sept. 28 and will be accountable for the park’s strategic plan to preserve Western Canada’s culture and heritage in a way that is relevant to the present and future.
Margriet Kiel, Heritage Park Society board chair, is excited about what Galloway will bring to the park, especially during the pandemic and with the challenges that come with it.
“Mr. Galloway’s background in advocating for and elevating two of Calgary’s most iconic not-for-profit organizations, coupled with his proven leadership and communications skills in the business and tourism sectors, make him the perfect candidate to take the helm at Heritage Park and lead the park during and post current unprecedented and challenging times,” Kiel said in a statement.
