Get to Know the Chard Team – Meet Heather Harley!

Heather is our Vice President of Marketing and Communications and wears many different hats around our organization. She has been with Chard for almost 6 years now and has been a part of the development industry since 2002!

After completing an MBA at the University of Victoria, Heather began her career working for an advertising agency, with a focus on the web development side of things. After a few years on the supplier side, she followed a passion for real estate and began working with one of BC’s largest real estate developers as their Marketing Coordinator. Over a period of 14 years, she worked her way up, eventually assuming the position of VP, Marketing & Communications before joining us here at Chard.  

Her role at Chard is never the same day to day, and as she says, “Whether I’m focused on project design, strategic marketing, community consultation or purchaser communications, I love that I am often surrounded by amazing, creative people who are passionate about what they do.” 

A few things you might not know about Heather is that she isn’t a born and raised British Columbian and grew up on the East Coast of Canada on Cape Breton Island. She likes to start her day at her local CrossFit gym followed by a walk with her dog and husband to her neighbourhood Tim Hortons for an extra-large steeped tea.

When it comes to why she loves working at Chard, she says, “I absolutely love working at Chard! Our entire team is so committed and operates without ego to accomplish our collective goal of providing quality homes for people and businesses. It’s inspiring!”
