Al Smith has spent his whole life building communities and helping  people.

As a Director with an international not for profit, he helped build the largest area in Canada and witnessed first-hand how an organization could benefit and contribute to the success of others’ lives.

Al has been a serial entrepreneur since the age of 24, when he started a successful commercial aerospace engineering company with his father and brother. Through the years, he has launched and funded multiple start-ups which led to his work as a turnaround CEO. Al has always quickly risen to a leadership role and focused on helping people and mentoring anyone that asked for his guidance.

Alongside his leadership and business development acumen, Al has a strong creative side.  He is an equally gifted photographer, specializing in environmental portraiture, with a talent for telling stories about people through his lens.

“My passion has always been to help people pull together for the betterment of everyone.  My whole history has come together because of how much I value people and want to help uplift them.  My natural response has always been that I want to help support and empower, and Vic42 will be a celebration that does just that.”

Al thrives where entrepreneurialism, creativity, photography, and people collided!
