Making a Difference at Home and Around the World


Keith Z. BrewsterExecutive Director

Meet Keith, the Executive Director and lead philanthropist of the Stober Family Foundation. Keith's passion for community and philanthropy, coupled with his experience in business development strategy, make him the perfect fit to lead the Stober family foundation. He works diligently to direct, guide, and shape our philanthropic goals. He turns our vision into reality, and is often on the ground, working with local and global charities’ initiatives directly.
 
Originally from Northern Ontario, Keith came to Kelowna to pursue a PhD from the University of British Columbia. While his undergraduate and master’s degrees focused on both Clinical Psychology and Neurobiology, Keith redirected his academic interests and specialties towards Vascular Physiology, Bariatric Surgery/Medicine, and Metabolism during his graduate and post graduate research at UBC and UCLA. After academia, Keith pursued a successful career in the food and nutraceutical industries, ultimately selling his food company and discovering his passion in business development and philanthropy.
 
When not in the office, Keith can usually be found outdoors, in a café, a yoga studio, hiking or possibly somewhere halfway around the world on a random adventure. Tracking him down is an adventure in and of itself! Some of his favourite hobbies include travelling, music, cycling, swimming, running up mountains, yoga, scuba diving, and sampling food/espresso wherever life takes him.
