A decade ago, President and CEO of CRS Group of Companies, Suki Sekhon, discovered and identified a unique opportunity and acquired a rock-strewn 220-acre piece of land in the Similkameen Valley. Known today as Vanessa Vineyard, Suki is not only a passionate philanthropist and businessman, but a husband and father of 4-children. In honour of Father’s Day, we decided to interview Suki and get to know him and what he loves about fatherhood. Happy Father’s Day, Suki!
