The City of Fernie has thanked Director of Operations Dave Cockwell for his years of dedication.
October 19 marked 37 years that Cockwell has been with the City as well as his last day at City Hall.
“Dave has certainly earned his retirement and on behalf of all that Dave has worked with at the City of Fernie, we wish him the very best in the next stage of his life. Dave will be dearly missed,” said Chief Administrative Officer Norm McInnis.
A new Director of Operations was appointed earlier this month.
Zabrina Pendon joined the City of Fernie team on October 1. Pendon previously worked as the Manager of the East Kootenay Office of ISL Engineering and Land Services in Fernie.
She brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to the City’s Operations Department.
“Zabrina has the professional designation of P.Eng and has an MBA from the University of Calgary,” said McInnis.
“We could not have found a better candidate to replace Dave as our Director of Operations. We are pleased to have her join our team and utilize her expertise going forward.”
