14 DAR­REN EN­TWISTLE

CEO, TELUS PRE­VI­OUSLY# 15,2017˜ The Telus CEO has long kept a low pro‘le —no Steve Jobs–style an­nounce­ments for this fella—but that’s set to change this year as both he and the com­pany he runs (B.C.’S big­gest, BTW) get into the phi­lan­thropy game, big time. First up is Telus’s plan to do­nate $120 mil­lion from the sale of down­town’s Telus Gar­dens to a char­i­ta­ble fund (per­haps to make up for the tra£c snarls the build­ing’s con­struc­tion un­leashed on Sey­mour Street). And this past June, En­twistle and wife Fiona launched the En­twistle Fam­ily Foun­da­tion to help at-risk Cana­dian youth re­al­ize their full po­ten­tial (with $1 mil­lion of their own funds as seed money). On the busi­ness side, wire­less has been slow­ing, but the bur­geon­ing health, in­ter­net and TV seg­ments should help keep Telus atop the busi­ness pyra­mid.
