Qualicum Beach’s chief administrative officer, Daniel Sailland, will soon leave the town and take on a similar role with the the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District (ACRD).
Sailland announced his resignation on Oct. 20, according to a release from the Town of Qualicum Beach. The new opportunity will allow Sailland to apply his experience and expand his skills across a larger region, the release said.
“Although I will miss working with so many incredible people in Qualicum Beach, I am excited to take on this new role with the ACRD, and I look forward to working within the vast diversity that the Alberni-Clayoquot region offers,” he said.
Sailland’s last day with the town will be Nov. 14.
“Mr. Sailland has played a central role in advancing a crucial transformation that will continue to create positive change for this community for many years to come” said Mayor Brian Wiese.
“His ability to develop strategic solutions, build teams and manage change, along with his passion to inspire others, has resulted in millions of dollars in grants for our community. It has produced a number of award-winning climate adaptation initiatives, as well as cutting edge policies and frameworks that are now being replicated across our province. We thank him for his service and wish him well in his future.”
Sailland was hired in 2014 and since that time has helped advance significant milestones for the town, from planning and policy, through to major capital projects, according to the release.
