Teresa Davis, Tourism Manager at Tourism Campbell River and Region, has been named the island’s “Most Valuable Player” by her peers.

The award was presented to Davis at the annual Tourism Vancouver Island ceremonies to showcase the best of Vancouver Island tourism representatives and businesses.

The awards ceremony was held at the Best Western Premier Prestige Oceanfront Resort in Sooke.

Dave Petryk, President and CEO of Tourism Vancouver Island said: “The MVP Award recognizes an individual or a tourism business that has demonstrated a commitment to the growth of tourism through outstanding contributions to Tourism Vancouver Island.

Davis has worked for Tourism Campbell River for 12 years and has sat on the association’s marketing board for as long as she can remember. She said she was “excited and humbled” to be selected for the award.

“Locally we have wonderful tourism operators and we are doing an excellent job of raising the tourism profile of Campbell River,” she said.

Petryk said: “The recipient of this award was chosen for her above and beyond contributions which assist in increasing the profile of Tourism Vancouver Island to the region’s industry and communities.

“Teresa is always enthusiastic and supportive of Tourism Vancouver Island’s initiatives and contributes an amazing amount of energy and ideas to Tourism Vancouver Island meetings and programs. She is committed to the industry and seeing it grow not only in Campbell River, but throughout Vancouver Island,” Petryk said.
