Meet our Corporate Sales Director Courtney HatfieldMarch 13, 2014 | 3416 Views
Courtney Hatfield joined The West Coast Fishing Club in May 2012 as Corporate Sales Director, but her involvement began when she became a committee member for our acclaimed Fishing for Kids Fundraising Tournament back in 2006. Courtney has helped to grow Fishing for Kids into one of BC’s largest fundraising events, which raised $1.17m in 2013. She enjoys bringing together the charity and business communities and seeing Fishing For Kids participants benefit from the bonding time.
Courtney’s unique work experience includes a career with a global financial firm, the role of Director of Development, Partnerships and Communications at the Pacific Salmon Foundation and being co-host of the award-winning fishing show, Fishing with Shelley & Courtney and Get Out with Shelley & Courtney.
“I’ve been fishing for over 30 years and have filmed over 200 fishing shows,” says Courtney. “This year the fishing was how I remember it in the late 90s – it’s amazing to see the cycle and I am optimistic that it’s only going to get better. I have so many great fishing memories but my most recent one involves watching a very good friend reel in her first Salmon at The Clubhouse. You can’t relive your first catch but she made me remember! I never take what I do for a living for granted; whether I am catching fish, watching someone else reel theirs in or telling stories to entice people to come and experience it for themselves.”
