The Chief Administrative Officer for the Cariboo Regional District is heading south.
The CRD announced today (September 26, 2022) that John MacLean will be leaving in late October to assume a new role as CAO with the Columbia Shuswap Regional District in early November.
“I would like to thank the Chair, CRD Board, staff, and the people of the Cariboo Region for their support during my time here and wish them nothing but the best.” MacLean said in a release, “It has been my pleasure working with the CRD staff and serving this region.”
CRD Chair Margo Wagner said “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with and learning from John over the past 5 years, and I and the Board of Directors, wish him nothing but the best in his new position. John has built a great team within the CRD and I know they join me in wishing him well.”
The Cariboo Regional District said MacLean joined the leadership in 2017 and his presence and strong leadership will certainly be missed by the staff and management team.
“We also recognize that continuity and reassurance for employees are very important when there is a change in a top position within the organization, and the Board is currently in the process of launching a formal recruitment process to find the right fit to fill this vital role,” Wagner said.
