f (#5, 2016) FOUNDER & DI­REC­TOR, REN­NIE GROUP

The Col­lec­tor Bob Ren­nie’s de­par­ture from his role as chief fundraiser for the BC Lib­er­als four months be­fore the elec­tion marked an end of an era: in the past four years, the party raised a $32-mil­lion chest un­der him. Out of pol­i­tics, he’s poured his re­sources into less con­tro­ver­sial en­deav­ours: art and phi­lan­thropy, donat­ing $12 mil­lion dol­lars’ worth of art in 2017 to the Na­tional Gallery of Canada. Ren­nie, how­ever, hasn’t en­tirely strayed from the po­lit­i­cal spot­light. At the height of the de­bate of 105 Keefer Street, Ren­nie was a vo­cal sup­porter of the project, even lend­ing his voice in favour of it be­fore city coun­cil.
