District of Clearwater announced recently the hiring of Wesley Renaud, who will replace Sheila Thiessen as director of finance.
“Sheila is moving on to be with her spouse Dwayne in Merritt – she will be missed!” said chief administrative officer Leslie Groulx.
After spending a week of training with Thiessen, Renaud will assume the role on May 19.
Renaud brings extensive experience in finance as business management and project controller for high profile projects, background in information technology, and team management. He has been the lead business manager on the Sea-to-Sky Highway improvement project, and project controller for the Evergreen Rapid Transit project.
The new director of finance and his family are moving to Clearwater from Burnaby. He enjoys recreational hockey, golfing, hiking and generally any outdoor activities. He and his wife Kelly and young son look forward to growing a garden, frequenting the farmers market and exploring our backyard. Renaud and family are very excited to be moving to our community.
