The District of Sooke has hired a new chief administrative officer.

Teresa Sullivan takes over Monday (Dec. 14) from the departing Gord Howie.

Sullivan brings a “transformative leadership style” to the position of CAO, drawing on her extensive management experience with the provincial government, said a district press release.

For the last eight years she has run her own consulting company. She also served on Colwood council between 2011 and 2013.

“Ms. Sullivan’s experience and positive approach will be extremely beneficial to the District of Sooke and we look forward to welcoming her to our team,” said acting mayor Kevin Pearson.

Sullivan has a master’s degree in business administration from Royal Roads University and has worked in both the public and private sector providing consulting services in government relations, leadership, and media relations.

“I feel serving as the CAO for the District is an exciting opportunity to help council and staff build strong community relationships and shape the future of Sooke,“ Sullivan said.
