To understand Marlene’s drive, one merely has to look at her past. Marlene completed her first ultra-distance running race in 1996, a 56 mile (90km) race named Comrades Marathon in South Africa. Her next big race was New York Marathon in 2001, followed by competing in the infamous Ironman Canada Triathlon in 2007, and running Boston Marathon in 2010. Many short triathlons, multiple marathons and ironman events have occurred in between as she’s an avid swimmer, runner, and keen cyclist. Marlene participates in the Vancouver to Whistler Gran Fondo each year, representing an Italian cycling club founded in Tuscany, Italy.
Marlene received her strata and rental real estate license in 2008 from the University of British Columbia and added an Advanced Strata Management License from Langara College.
Her competitive nature and extensive education and business experience are the cornerstones to understanding the fundamentals of financial management, budgets, goals and objectives and in providing value to our Club.
Marlene established a sound business foundation at a young age, having founded a candy manufacturing company in South Africa which distributed high-end candy products to retail outlets throughout South Africa, Australia and North America. She sold the business and studied to receive her Executive MBA before arriving in Canada in 1998.

Sean is originally from Ontario, where he fell in love with skiing at three years of age. He raced for eight years for his hometown hill. It allowed him to travel to all the ice hills (ski hills) around Ontario during that time. He has been fortunate enough to ski in Europe, the United States and Canada's west coast, making him fall even more in love with the mountains.
Sean has called Whistler his home for over twelve years now (who's counting) and never looked back. The great outdoors that Whistler has to offer is bar none to most places, which is why this is a world-renowned resort. The different people and cultures that visit make Whistler that much more magical for anyone.
Sean's continued goal is always to be a five-star ambassador to everyone who visits or stays in Whistler because he believes everyone should feel as lucky as he does.
