Get to know the Kelowna Chamber Ambassadors. This bi-weekly update will introduce you to the people behind-the-scenes at the Chamber, and learn what they love about serving our business community. This week we want to introduce you to Tanvir Gill, a wonderful member of our Ambassador team. If you would like to learn more about our Ambassador program and get involved please EMAIL US.

What is your position / title and company, and what do you do there?
I am a lawyer with FH&P Lawyers LLP and I practice mainly in the areas of Business Law, Commercial & Residential Real Estate and Wills & Estates with the firm.
How long have you been in the Okanagan? If you aren’t originally from the valley, what led you to call the Okanagan ‘home’? 
I grew up in Surrey B.C. but began thinking about moving to Kelowna around 2014. I spent a short time in Kamloops but moved to Kelowna officially in 2018 when I completed law school. Although having my family in the City made it an easy decision, I found Kelowna attractive because it was and still is a quickly growing City with booming agricultural, wine, technology, small business and construction industries. As a younger lawyer with an interest in real estate and corporate law, I knew I could learn and develop a practice in a City like Kelowna.
What do you enjoy most about your Ambassador role with the Kelowna Chamber?
As an ambassador, I was able to learn what the Chamber offers to the community and business owners. I enjoy connecting with new members of the Chamber to learn about their individual businesses and to see how the Chamber can help them with their current and future needs. As someone new to Kelowna, becoming an ambassador was a great way to get involved in the community.
What are you looking forward to / planning for the future?
I am looking forward to the day that we can all enjoy travelling and the opportunity to gather with family and friends again. If anything, I think Covid forced many people to think through their priorities and objectives. I like that Kelowna continues to grow, we are seeing that with what our current real estate climate looks like. I’m excited to grow my practice in the Okanagan!
