Zachary Seymour, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Director
Originally from the hamlet of Granum, Alberta, Zach holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Calgary and a Juris Doctor from the University of Victoria. A senior associate lawyer at Dentons Canada LLP, Zach’s practice focuses on construction litigation and arbitration, with an emphasis on complex public infrastructure disputes. As Vice Chair of the Board of Directors, Zach is a senior leader and advisor to the Chair, and as Secretary, he is the custodian of all important records, including the organization’s by-laws and incorporation documents.
Zach joined MitoCanada as part of his commitment to help those suffering from rare, under-diagnosed medical conditions. Two of Zach’s immediate family members suffer from mitochondrial disease, and Zach himself is a brain tumour survivor. Zach hopes to use his platform as a litigation lawyer and his unique background to advocate for others.
In his downtime, Zach enjoys cooking, cycling, all things basketball, and walking his dog, Maisey.
