There has been a change on the board of CityWest, a board that includes the entire senior management team of the City of Prince Rupert.

There has been a changing of the guard on the board of CityWest, a board that now includes the entire senior management team of the City of Prince Rupert.

Joining city manager Robert Long, the city manager who has served as a director for the past year as the representative of the company’s lone shareholder, are chief financial officer Corinne Bomben and corporate administrator Rory Mandryk.

The other new director formerly held a management position with the City of Prince Rupert as Bob Thompson, the long-serving director of engineering and public works, was appointed a director for the telecommunications company.

The new directors, appointed earlier this year, replace outgoing directors Bruce Kerr, Steve Lake and Frank Parnell. As well, director and former chair Jack Payne and director Lael McKeown stepped down after serving for seven and four years, respectively, with Long being appointed the chair of the board.

“On behalf of CityWest, I’d like to thank all the outgoing members for their service to the company. Their support and guidance were instrumental in CityWest realizing its continued success as a local telecommunications company,” said CEO Don Holkestad.

“We are looking forward to working with these new Board members as we continue to provide quality telecommunications products to Northwest B.C. and strive to meet the demands of a growing digital economy.”

With two spots being vacant and five directors currently sitting, including six year director Rhoda Witherly, management from the City of Prince Rupert hold a majority of votes on the board.
