Sue Eckersley is the President of Watermark Communications Inc., an event-planning company which formerly produced the World Ski and Snowboard Festival (WSSF) and the Whistler Cornucopia festival. She launched the Whistler Sled Dog Co. in 2011 in response to the cull of 56 sled dogs the previous year, with the aim of providing a model in the industry for the humane treatment of animals.
