BCHL hires executive director

White Rock native joins Junior A hockey league

Trevor Alto is back with the B.C. Hockey League.

The White Rock native is leaving a six-year career in the financial industry to join the Junior A circuit as its executive director. Alto is a former member of the Prince George Spruce Kings.

In his new role, he will be dealing with league sponsors, seeking out new partners for the BCHL, heading the league’s finance committee and overseeing the day-to-day operations of the 16-team league.

Among his tasks is implementing the league’s strategic plan to build the BCHL brand, apply discipline to teams and players, and work with BCHL director of officiating Derek Adams.

“I am excited to join the BCHL and take on the challenge of growing what is an already-solid league,” said Alto, 33. “As a former junior and university hockey player, I realize the opportunities hockey provides and am looking forward to ensuring those continue to be available for our current players.”

Alto also played at the Junior A level with the Crowsnest Pass Timberwolves in Alberta, before joining the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds while completing studies in sports management and commerce.

“We are pleased to have a person of Trevor’s calibre join the BCHL office,” said commissioner John Grisdale. “Trevor’s experiences in business and hockey will be a real asset to us as we continue to grow our league and provide opportunities for players and their families.”
