CEO, CREATIVE BC
PREVIOUSLY # 35, 2017 The money is flowing into Creative Bc—the organization got a $1-million boost from the province in February and a promise for $75 million to create a new music fund—making CEO Gill more of a power player than ever in the creative industries scene. And what a scene it is: in February, B.C. surpassed Ontario as Canada’s top locale for film and TV production for the first time, thanks to Gill and co.’s work wooing streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime into town. As one of the Globe and Mail’s 10 Women Who Matter in Film and TV and a recent winner of a Darpan Extraordinary Achievement Award for Corporate Engagement, her reach is recognized well beyond city limits.
