Ben Duthie

Marketing Manager

Growing up in the small winter town of Elkford, tucked away in British Columbia’s East Kootenay region of the Rocky Mountains, Ben has always been at home in the mountains. He began snowboarding at the age of 4 and has spent the last 30+ years expanding his knowledge and skill within the sport.  

After completing 2 years of his Bachelor of Engineering degree at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Ben transferred to the University of Victoria where he completed his Bachelor of Commerce degree with a specialization in Management and Entrepreneurship in 2012. During this time, Ben spent half a year in Hong Kong studying cross-cultural negotiations and working as an intern for a local technology startup company. Ben has travelled to more than 25 countries and enjoys studying tourism marketing best practices so that he can leverage them back home.

Ben is best referred to as a jack of all trades having spent the last decade in a wide-variety of tourism management roles ranging from GM and Business Operator, to Sales Manager, to Marketing Manager, to Operations and Human Resources Manager.  

In 2019, after spending 10 years managing one of British Columbia’s largest marine eco-tourism operations, Ben moved to Whistler to pursue his passion and to join the team at Bella Coola Heli Sports.

Ben spent his first two years with the company managing the B2B Sales department before taking over as Marketing Manager in May 2022.
