Volunteer Profile: Meet John

John Esplen is President, CEO and owner of The Humberview Group, which owns and operates 20 franchise auto dealership operations and other automotive-related companies across the GTA. He’s been a volunteer on Osler Foundation’s Board of Directors for nearly five years. A lifelong resident of Etobicoke, John is especially passionate about raising awareness of Etobicoke General among the community in south Etobicoke.

“Many people who live in this area don’t realize that Etobicoke General is their community hospital,” says Mr. Esplen. “My inspiration for volunteering on the Board is to build awareness of the hospital and also of the funding needs. Every great community deserves a great hospital. If you live or work in Etobicoke, you’ve only got one hospital and it’s Etobicoke General.”
