John Norman, Co-Founder & COO, Bonavista Living, Bonavista Creative and Bonavista Creative Workshop.
John Norman, with his wife Leann Pardy, purchased their first heritage home in Bonavista while both fresh out of University. Seven years later the group of companies, focused on built heritage assets and opportunities in residential and commercial real estate, employs dozens and has changed the path of the Town of Bonavista forever.
“Bonavista is a place like no other in Newfoundland. Its built landscape, daily pulse and vitality, as well as authenticity make it a unique case for creative economy development and has been primed for investment through decades of strategic planning and spending”.
