Jamil A. KarimMarketing and Communications Manager
Jamil is the Marketing and Communications Manager at BC Innovation Council. After graduating from Royal Roads University in 2010, his professional career has taken him on a unique, albeit interesting journey before landing here at BCIC. Whether it was interning for free at a start-up newspaper, securing media opportunities in the New York Times, managing global marketing projects, or even teaching math to preschool students – Jamil’s done a little bit of everything over the past decade. His true passion is writing, as he’s been published in several publications and continues to work as a freelancer writer in his spare time.
Jamil also serves as a committee member at the City Centre Community Association in his hometown of Richmond and can usually be found volunteering at community events around the city.
When he’s not working, he’s usually at home watching Netflix, listening to Nickelback, or agonizingly stressing over a meaningless sporting event.
