Meet Luca Citton, the DVBIA’s new Board Chair.

The DVBIA is excited to welcome Luca Citton of Boughton Law Corporation, as its new Board Chair.

Luca is no stranger to downtown Vancouver, as he has been working within the district for almost twenty years. He is the Managing Director and a Business Lawyer at Boughton Law, a law firm based in the downtown core.

Boughton Law has had a long-standing relationship with the DVBIA for many years. Luca played a large part in strengthening that relationship, and after several years serving on one of the committees, Luca was asked to join the Board in 2017.

One of Luca’s favourite parts of being involved with the DVBIA is the ability to help make ideas that better our district and community become a reality. As Chair, Luca is looking forward to being part of innovative and transformative downtown projects that will continue to enhance downtown Vancouver.

The Laneway Projects are among Luca’s favourite and most memorable
projects he has seen the DVBIA team implement downtown during his time on the Board of Directors. He notes that having K-Pop superstars “Twice,” film their music video at Alley Oop—which now has over 400 million views on YouTube, was one of his DVBIA highlights.

2020 has been a year of adaptation for the DVBIA and its members, and Luca speaks highly of the work that the association has done to advocate for the recovery of our downtown member businesses.

Looking ahead into the remainder of the year, Luca is excited to see all of the creative ideas the Placemaking team comes up with to keep downtown Vancouver vibrant during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The DVBIA is looking forward to working with Luca over the next several
months, as well as Melissa Higgs and Vera Lui, our new Vice Chair and
Secretary Treasurer. Stay tuned for next month’s newsletter for a “Getting to Know” Melissa and Vera!
