Terry has been the President & CEO of the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada (RAMWC) since June 2019. He was given the mandate to transform and grow the museum. Since then, he has led the construction of the new museum ahead of schedule and under budget; a remarkable feat in COVID times. He is also responsible for spearheading the museum’s $48 million Climb Aboard! Capital Campaign. More $47 million has been raised toward the campaign to date.

At the University of Ontario, he led the university’s role in creating the largest Automotive Centre of Excellence in Canadian history. At Bridgepoint, Terry led an initiative to create a national centre of excellence in Indigenous health.
In addition, he spent seven years living and working in Eastern Europe, helping to pioneer and establish a micro-enterprise development organization that created and sustained numerous businesses and jobs throughout Eastern Europe and Russia. Terry also created an NGO that has enabled thousands of inner-city youth in Slovakia to experience the joy of sport regardless of physical or financial ability. Terry’s awards include Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee Commemorative Medal for "making a significant contribution to Canada and impacting literally thousands of lives through humanitarian service", and the University of Western Ontario's Alumni Award of Merit.
