Pamela Bottomley, former communications consultant and 20-year resident of Nanoose Bay, has been named Executive Director of the Parksville Downtown Business Association (PDBA).
She succeeds Vicki Swan, who left the position in August.
“Pam has a long history of business and volunteerism in our community,” said Neil Watson, PDBA president in making the announcement. “Her extensive background in management, marketing, strategic planning and public relations caused us to believe she is the right person to move our organization to the next level.”
The PDBA administers the business improvement area (BIA) established by City of Parksville bylaw No. 1453.
Under that bylaw, an annual property tax is levied on commercial properties bounded by McVickers and McMillan and Jensen and the waterfront.
Those funds are directed to the PDBA to assist with its business promotion and enhancement activities.
