District of Sooke hires director of corporate services

Gabryel Joseph has expertise in communications, human resources and economic development.

Days after the departure of long-time corporate officer Bonnie Sprinkling, the District of Sooke has hired a new director of corporate services.

Gabryel Joseph has expertise in communications, human resources and economic development.

Joseph comes to the district after serving as the strategic coordinator for the City of Edmonton’s transportation department.

District of Sooke chief administrative officer Teresa Sullivan worked with Joseph in the past. She was not immediately available for comment.

Sullivan wrote on Joseph’s online Linked-In page:

“Gabryel inspires loyalty and goodwill in others, because he acts with integrity and trust himself. He is decisive and impassioned, is capable of bold and courageous moves, and is confident in his ability to deal with situations as they arise.

“He knows how to shape the future and figures out where an organization needs to go to succeed; he tests these ideas pragmatically against existing resources; and he works with others to figure out how to get from the present to the desired future.”

Joseph comes to Sooke after the departure of three key managers in a matter of weeks: Sprinkling, finance director Michael Dillabaugh and municipal engineer Elisabeth Nelson.

Sullivan took over as CAO in mid-December.
