“Community is much more than belonging to something; it’s about doing something together that makes belonging matter.” Brian Solis

Brian Standish

My leadership style can be described as a balanced approach, where I balance common sense with fact and ultimately make decisions that are in the best interest of the community.

I’ve managed Standish Home Hardware in Banff for the past eight years, prior to that I worked at Brewster Travel Canada. I was born and raised in Banff, yes, a Banff unicorn. I have 3 grown children from a previous marriage and am now helping raise two beautiful girls with my partner.

Sports have played a major role in my life and I continue to be actively involved in the following:

  • Banff Springs Tennis Club
  • Crossfit Banff
  • Banff Bears Rugby Club
  • Banff Minor Hockey
  • Banff Old Timers Hockey Club
  • Banff Firefighters Hockey
  • Bow Valley Sports Hall of Fame
I would describe myself as:
– A proven leader
– A passionate citizen
– A team player
– An experienced listener
