International Advisory Board honours Dr. Brock Smith

On April 4, 2017, the Gustavson School of Business International Advisory Board presented Dr. Brock Smith with its third annual Community Engagement Award. Designed to celebrate a Gustavson faculty member who demonstrates exceptional community engagement, the award recognizes that Gustavson’s long-term success is closely tied to its relationships among the business community and seeks to recognize faculty who go above and beyond to support these relationships. Past recipients of the award were faculty members Dr. Rebecca Grant (2015) and Ms. Mia Maki (2016).

Smith is a professor at Gustavson, as well as a Francis G. Winspear Scholar and champion of Gustavson’s entrepreneurship specialization. His expertise lies in marketing and entrepreneurship, and he frequently contributes to these areas as a thought leader in media and community discussions. Smith is an active consultant and board member for business initiatives in Vancouver and Victoria and has served several times as a judge of Canada’s Next Ad Exec Competition.
