Anthony Haddad, the former director of development services for the City of Penticton, is returning to the city as general manager of community services.
“It’s great to be back working with Donny (van Dyk), Council and the leadership team at the City; it’s an exciting time for the South Okanagan and Penticton’s role in its growth and development bodes well for a prosperous future,” said Haddad in a release.
Haddad was most recently the chief administrator for the District of Summerland, until the district today announced he was stepping down.
Haddad will be joining the city as part of a shakeup of the staff leadership, which will now have three general manager positions. The city’s chief financial officer, Jim Bauer, will be the new general mananger of finance and administration. Mitch Moroziuk will continue as general manager of infrastructure.
“Council met with our CAO to discuss these organizational and leadership changes, changes which follow months of budget and staff reductions,” said Penticton mayor John Vassilaki.
“It’s unreasonable to expect that, after so much disruption, the City’s leadership structure would continue forward as it was, pre-COVID-19. The CAO’s appointment of Mr. Haddad and Mr. Bauer into general manager roles and the realignment of City services under their leadership is a timely and wise step to take on our journey towards recovery.”
Haddad will be in his position in Summerland until Nov. 10.
