Power 50:Hall of Fame

03/26/2024

Vancouver Magazine unveiled its 23rd annual Power 50 list in the February 2024 issue, highlighting the most influential figures in the Greater Vancouver area. This marked the first release of the list under the new editor-in-chief, Stacey McLachlan, who reflected on her 24-year journey since joining the magazine as an intern and witnessing Vancouver's evolution. While the earlier iterations of the Power 50 were dominated by white males, the list has now diversified over the past two decades. The editorial team continually redefined the concept of "Power," and this year's list includes elites from various fields such as culture, politics, and business, alongside outstanding philanthropists and community leaders. Today, "Power" is not solely defined by wealth or status but also by ideology and contribution.


In a special addition to this year's Power 50, the magazine introduced the Hall of Fame, paying tribute to fifteen individuals who have consistently made the list since its inception. Among them, three prominent icons from the Chinese community with Hong Kong backgrounds shine in the Hall of Fame. The first is Thomas Fung, Founder and Chairman of the Fairchild
Group, under the umbrella of which are Fairchild Television and Fairchild Radio, two outstanding Chinese media in North America. The second is Terry Hui, Chairman of Concord Pacific Group, who prioritizes community engagement in large-scale real estate projects like Concord Pacific Place and serves as a director of the Vancouver Board of Trade. The third is James K.M. Cheng, Founder of James K.M. Cheng Architects, who has shaped Vancouver's urban landscape with distinctive architectural and urban planning designs for over four decades.


Other influential figures in the Hall of Fame include the cross-industry billionaire Jim Pattison, the relentless innovators behind Lululemon, Chip Wilson, and Shannon Wilson, as well as Brandt Louie, the second-generation leader of London Drugs, serving as now as the Chairman and CEO.
