Brian Balfe’s contributions as a founding board member, past president and ambassador have significantly expanded PRISMA’s reach and patronship in the Comox Valley. “He’s instrumental even now with the [Sail to the Symphony tour] and helping us stage events over on the island,” says PRISMA chair Mike Robinson.
Balfe is a financial advisor with RBC Dominion Securites/Balfe Somers Wealth Management in Courtenay, which he operates along with business partner Don Somers. Their firm is credited as PRISMA’s founding sponsor. The PRISMA Endowment Fund was also a pet project of Balfe’s during his tenure, and one he continues to find donors for to this day.
