Meet The Team Behind Alberta Dreams

Reuel Thomas: Executive Director

Reuel strives to be an advocate and champion for those whose voices are often unheard or underrepresented.  With over two decades in leadership roles that span multiple industries from banking, post-secondary, to not-for-profits, he looks to lead the next phase of Alberta Dreams’ growth.  A curious, people-focused, critical thinker, Reuel is often drawn to tackling complex or challenging situations that have meaningful and lasting outcomes. A proud father of three active children, he is blessed with a loving and patient wife, and can be found coaching his kids soccer or exploring his interests in real estate.
