Former Enbridge employee appointed Penticton CAO
Donny van Dyk, a former senior employee with Enbridge, has been hired as Penticton’s new chief administrative officer.
Van Dyk worked in community and indigenous relations, government affairs and finance for the oil and gas company.
He also served as the chief administrative officer and chief financial officer for the District of New Hazelton.
“Mr. van Dyk’s enthusiasm, education and professional experience, combined with his track record of managing issues, building relationships and overseeing budgets in both the public and private sector, confirmed his standing as the successful candidate,” Penticton Mayor John Vassilaki said.
Penticton received 91 applications for the position.
Outgoing chief administrative officer Peter Weeber is leaving for the private sector but will help van Dyk through a transition plan.
Van Dyk is originally from Terrace, B.C.Follow @Jules_Knox
