Kamloops, BC – August 30, 2023 – The Thompson-Nicola Regional District is pleased to announce that Greg Lowis has been hired as the new General Manager of Corporate and Legislative Services.
“I’m really looking forward to joining the TNRD, and supporting the communities across the region of BC’s best,” Lowis said.
Lowis brings nearly 15 years of local government experience to this role at the TNRD. After emigrating to Canada from the United Kingdom, Lowis completed a law degree at the University of Victoria. He has worked in local government administration for the City of Merritt since 2019. At the City of Merritt, Lowis served in many roles including Interim Chief Administrative Officer, Corporate Officer, Chief Election Officer, EOC Public Information Officer, and more.
“We were fortunate to have had many excellent candidates for this position, and are excited to now have Greg join the team with his broad skillset, experience, and enthusiasm. I’m confident that Greg will help us build on positive changes to policies and procedures that we have made as an organization,” said Chief Administrative Officer Scott Hildebrand.
Reporting to the CAO, the General Manager of Corporate and Legislative Services manages three departments in the division, performs the statutory duties of the Corporate Officer, facilitates legislative processes, and provides procedural guidance and advice to the Board of Directors and staff. This position has been vacated at the TNRD following the departure of Deanna Campbell, who was hired as the CAO for the Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality.
“We are grateful for Deanna’s contributions over her years of service with the TNRD and we are thrilled for this next step in her career,” Hildebrand said.
Lowis will take over the position beginning in late September.
