Jim Button is a leader in networked marketing and has been for over 25 years.
As a founder of Village Brewery, Jim works hard to gather people around community. Using beer as a social lubricant he leverages his many experiences in marketing and building communities to create a more connected Calgary.
At Evans Hunt Group, a digital marketing firm, Jim gets to focus that networked background on a one-to-one relationship – helping customers participate in the brands they engage with online.
His passion for community investment has been a common thread through his career and has earned him a philanthropy award from the Canadian Association of Fundraising Professionals, two “40 Under 40” awards with Calgary Inc (now Avenue Magazine), an e-Award for Community Service from Alberta Venture Magazine, the Sherrold Moore Community Award thru the Calgary Chamber and most recently recognized as a Calgary Leader by Business in Calgary Magazine .
