A chartered accountant, Skene will be presented his award during the chamber’s annual Greater Victoria Business Awards on April 24 at the Fairmont Empress.

Other awards to be presented include business leadership, new business, innovation, outstanding customer service, business of the year, sustainable business practices, employer of the year, business person of the year, young entrepreneur of the year and employee of the year.
