James Buchanan


   James Buchanan has been involved with the Tarragon Theatre board for almost 10 years, including his role as former President and Board Chair.

   Having enjoyed live theatre for most of his life, James’ passion for the Tarragon began over 20 years ago. After attending numerous productions with his wife, a former board member herself, he became a staunch supporter of the theatre and a board member. James’ respect for the unique contribution that Tarragon makes to the Canadian theatre community has continued to grow. In addition, he holds in high esteem the artists, executive and staff members which are involved in the organization.

   James has over 30 years’ experience as a business strategy consultant. His clients have included Canadian and global companies, across many industries. He has served on several for-profit company boards. In addition to Tarragon, James is currently involved with the boards of the Lake Joseph North Association and that of The Haven, a unique entity which is developing a not-for-profit treatment centre, for first responders suffering from PTSD.
