12 Bob Rennie
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 inuence 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.
