Scott Barry Named New CAO of the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality
FORT NELSON – The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality (NRRM) Council is pleased to announce that Mr. Scott Barry has been appointed as the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for the NRRM effective April 10, 2017. Regional Council is happy to have filled this position from within the organization and is confident that Scott will continue to provide outstanding leadership and excellent service to the community in his new role. Scott, who has lived in the community for 24 years, started with the Municipality in 2009, after transitioning from a successful management career in the private sector. Starting out as the building inspector he was quickly promoted to the Director of the Public Works Department, and in 2013 also assumed the role of Deputy CAO of Operations. He has been intimately involved in nearly all of the major NRRM projects over the last few years, including the roll-out of the Municipality’s landmark Infrastructure Development Contribution Agreement (IDCA) with the Provincial Government.
“We welcome the appointment of Scott Barry as CAO for the NRRM,” says Mayor Bill Streeper. “Mr. Barry has served the Municipality well in his various roles over the past eight years, often finding new and innovative ways for the NRRM to serve the public. He has a good history with our community and we are confident he will continue to be an asset in moving forward with the strategic priorities our Council has identified.”
Scott is replacing Mr. Randy McLean, who has announced his retirement after serving the Municipality for 25 years, including 12 years as CAO. Randy is assisting with the organization’s transition in an advisory role until August 2017. Regional Council also wants to express its sincere gratitude for the many years of exemplary service that Randy has provided to the NRRM and the community as a whole.Go to Top
