His active leadership in business and policy and through his community leadership have brought people and companies together with impact. He is currently serving the community as the Chair of the YMCA of B.C. He is a past Chair of the B.C. Cancer Foundation and served as one of seven members of the Premier’s COVID Advisory Council and as a member of numerous boards and advisory councils.

“CSG is a firm I know well and one that has earned a reputation for exceptional strategic public affairs advice to its clients,” stated D’Avignon. “I look forward to continuing this excellence and pursuing my passion to serve as a connector and collaborator between companies and organizations to get results for the people and companies that invest, live, and work in B.C. and Canada.”
