Vivian Lam is a small-town girl at heart. Born and raised in the Yukon, she has been fortunate enough to enjoy the northern lights, ride in a dog sled, and visit Alaska more times than she’d like to admit.

She eventually migrated south and attended BCIT in Vancouver where she studied International Business Management. It was during this time Vivian realized she had a penchant for business, finance, and for helping others.

She decided to pursue her passions by moving to Victoria to open her own business. It was always Vivian’s dream to help clients and foster an environment where people would be proud to be a part of a team.

After five years, Vivian sold her store and joined CIBC where she has been able to apply her invaluable experience as a small business owner. She has been with CIBC for 6 years and has worked in various roles and departments within the bank. Most recently Vivian is a part of the Cash Management team in Commercial Banking here in Calgary.
