Brian Reardon is the new chief administrative officer of the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan’s new chief administrative officer is no stranger to the area.

Brian Reardon, who begins his duties with RDCO April 15, is the former administrator of the Regional District of North Okanagan.

“I am thrilled to be given this incredible opportunity to work with the Central Okanagan regional board, its staff and its regional partners in building upon its success as a recognized leader in regional governance and in creating a healthy, sustainable region,” he said.

“I look forward to working with the board, and with staff to ensure the board’s strategic objectives are achieved and find new ways to strengthen the regional federation.”

The position of CAO became available when Harold Reay retired. The position has been held interim by Paul Macklem for a year.

“Mr. Reardon is very familiar with the Okanagan and has excellent leadership credentials,” said Robert Hobson, RDCO chairperson.

“His combination of experience in the regional district form of government, along with his leadership talent, makes him the perfect fit as the person to head our organization for the years ahead.”

For the past five years, Reardon has been administrative leader of the Strathcona Regional District on Vancouver Island.
