New CAO hired

Elkford Mayor Dean McKerracher and Council of the District of Elkford are pleased to announce that

Mr. Curtis Helgesen, Director of Financial Services and Deputy Chief Administrative Officer, has

been promoted to the position of Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) effective June 29, 2012.

Helgesen, who has been with the District of Elkford since 2006, has more than 17 years of

combined experience in both the public and private sector.

“We are very confident that Mr. Helgesen’s wealth of experience and knowledge make him the

ideal candidate for this position, and his leadership will help to continue to move our community

forward into a progressive future,” says Mayor Dean McKerracher.

Helgesen is taking over from outgoing CAO, Corien Speaker, who recently announced her

resignation after accepting the CAO position with the District of Squamish.
