Announcing Matthew Coyne as Cantrav’s new President

The team at Cantrav is pleased to announce Matt Coyne as our new President. After serving on Cantrav’s leadership team for the last three and a half years, Matt is well-positioned to carry Cantrav into its next chapter and continue our legacy as an award-winning national Destination and Event Management Company.

After 16 years at the helm, George Bartel has officially passed the president’s torch and controlling interest to Matt. It’s thanks to George’s incredible leadership and vision, that Cantrav is the company it is today: a premier DMC, supported by a passionate team of local experts in Vancouver, Whistler, Okanagan, Canadian Rockies, Toronto, and Montreal.

“I’m grateful to George for his mentorship and look forward to building on his legacy as Cantrav’s new leader,” says Matt. “I’m extremely proud of the team we’ve assembled and of their ability to curate and deliver awe-inspiring events and experiences in the most picturesque settings across the country.”

While George is staying on in an advisory capacity with Cantrav, he will turn the bulk of his attention to his passion for British Columbia’s Desolation Sound and his quickly growing coastal cruising business. Please join us in wishing George luck in his next chapter and congratulating Matt on his new role as President!

Moving forward, you can expect the same level of collaboration, commitment and creativity from us under Matt’s leadership, with a sharpened focus on what has always made Cantrav great: our people and partners.
