Langara alumnus named one of BCBusiness' 30 Under 30

Vancouver, BC - Langara is proud to announce that Boris Martin, an alumnus of Langara's School of Management, has been named one of BC's 30 Under 30 by BCBusiness magazine.
The BCBusiness 30 Under 30 celebrates BC's young movers and shakers who excel in their respective industries, give back to their community and planet, and who will lead business in this province for years to come. Each year, winners of the 30 Under 30 are featured in the April issue of BCBusiness and on 
Twenty-two year old Martin is the Co-founder and COO of Velofix Holdings Ltd, a mobile bike shop that offers on-site repairs. The company franchises a fleet of vans that conveniently services bikes across Vancouver, Victoria, and Calgary. 
"We couldn't be more proud of Boris's professional accomplishments in the short time since he completed his studies," says Spencer Dane, Department Chair of Langara School of Management. "Our faculty are committed to providing students with a solid theoretical foundation and practical skills, and the reward is seeing our graduates succeed." 
"In hindsight, I don’t think I could have started this business without my education at Langara," says Boris Martin. "The program helped me develop a well-rounded understanding of business and business practices. From accounting to human resources, to forecasting and stats, I am confident to say that without my education at Langara, I wouldn’t have had the skills and abilities to launch this business with the same success, or speed."
