A bit about Sam Cowan – EKFH's 1st Vice Chair

Submitted by EKFH on 22-07-2013

Sam Cowan has been in the Property and Casualty Insurance industry for 13 years with varying responsibilities.  He started working for an insurance company claims department and moved quickly into commercial sales then in the past 6 years into executive leadership.  Having completed the Fellow Chartered Insurance Professional designation, Sam has the ability to quantify, map and transfer many risks associated with enterprise. 

Sam’s thought on EKFH’s mission in providing funding:

What is a better way to give back to a community than to help with funding for the local hospital.  Given we are a regional hospital, EKFH engages in many funding opportunities throughout the East Kootenay region.   It is very exciting to see all the communities come together when there is a regional need or being able to focus on a specific community based initiative.

What does Sam hope to achieve in his time on the EKFH Board?

Sam hopes to help build on the strong foundation of his predecessors and continue to provide a lasting legacy for the region.   Furthermore, he looks forward to working with stakeholders to achieve making the East Kootenay Regional Hospital top in class in the province.
