Business Improvement Zone

Board of Directors

The Transcona BIZ is governed by a dedicated volunteer board made up of Transcona business owners and employees. They work tirelessly to oversee the work of the organization, and to ensure the interests of BIZ members - the businesses located in the zone - are front and centre in all we do.

The hands-on work and (we think) the fun stuff is managed by the energetic office team, with our executive Director, Alex Morrison leading the charge.

President's Message


rick_purlingHello my name is Rick Purling, Manager of the Winnipeg NVR Construction office.  It has been my pleasure to be a part of the Transcona BIZ Board since 2012 and since 2013 I’ve enjoyed the honour of Board Chair.  The Transcona BIZ Board is proud to represent the Transcona BIZ Members and through our annual AGM, membership consultation and community networking we provide membership with leadership and opportunities to improve business in our Zone.  Our vision is for member businesses to realize their full potential through engagement and participation in their BIZ.

Thank you and see you in the Zone!
