Meet the Partners

Randy Royer

Randy Royer has spent over 50 years working in all aspects of the hospitality industry with an emphasis on development, finance, and management. He started by washing glasses, before dishwashers, for the bar in his fathers hotel. By age 12, he was 6 feet tall and working as a bouncer for the bar.  Randy moved on up the corporate ladder over the years and in the early 90’s co-founded and served as the President and CEO of the Royal Host Real Estate Investment Trust. Royal Host was a publicly traded hospitality trust.

Throughout his career, Randy has conceived, defined, financed, constructed and managed over 30 hotels including the Banff Rocky Mountain Resort and the Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna, which was ultimately sold for a profit of $100M. Mr. Royer excels at identifying consumer trends and turning those insights into a profitable development vision.

In 2007 Randy purchased a 12 acre property in Colwood and over the next few years the concept of Pacific Landing was formed.  In a recent interview we did with Randy on Pacific Landing, he said “my favourite part is that I have two children that work in the company, that’s a dream I didn’t even dare dream.”

Ray Parks

Ray started out on Quadra Island and then Port Alberni before coming to Victoria to finish his university education. “For me it was the most beautiful place” Ray stated about Victoria in a recent interview. After university Ray began a career in the Government. Throughout the years he got the chance to manage the construction of various jails and courthouses in the province. He learned the business and found he quite enjoyed it.  Ray saw an opportunity to do his own little projects and got into buying and fixing up houses. After retiring from the Government, Ray wanted to keep busy and began his own consulting company.

Ray Parks is the President of BIM Consulting, which provides government relations, strategic planning, and project management advice to management teams in Victoria, BC. He is also the former CEO of the British Columbia Provincial Capital Commission and is the former Executive Director of the British Columbia Gaming Association. Ray was appointed a Royal Roads Fellow of Royal Roads University in 2009 and he holds key community development relationships for Pacific Landing.

Ray is featured in our third installment of Pacific Landings’ The Best in the Business blog. In the interview Ray said that he “think[s] the challenge with the project is that it is going to be hard to find another one. How do we top this, how do we better what we have done and how do we take what we have learned here and use it someplace else to build a better project”. This is where Ray spends most of his time for Pacific Landing, “looking for that property and looking for the challenge.”
