EX­EC­U­TIVE DI­REC­TOR AND FOUNDER, REN­NIE GROUP P RE­VI­OUSLY # 8 2017™ The past year has seen a di­min­ished role for the peren­nial power player. Ren­nie was tight with the BC Lib­er­als (serv­ing as its chief fundraiser) and they’re now out of power, while his favoured mu­nic­i­pal party, Vi­sion Van­cou­ver, is also fad­ing fast. But it’s also choice: the real es­tate mar­keter, now 62, has been hand­ing more con­trol in re­cent years to his deputies (in­clud­ing son Kris). Ren­nie’s in’uence in the art world, mean­while, re­mains strong, with fel­low col­lec­tors Bey­oncé and Jay-z get­ting a pri­vate tour of his Kerry James Mar­shall col­lec­tion—now show­ing at his mu­seum—in Oc­to­ber.
