Campbell River’s deputy city manager is retiring.
Ron Neufeld’s final day working for the city will be Sept 2.
Neufeld moved from Saskatchewan to Campbell River in 1992 and began his career as an engineering technician.
He filled many positions for the city before becoming deputy city manager and overseeing the city’s six corporate divisions.
“I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve this community for most of my working career,” said Neufeld.
“I still see so much opportunity and potential within the community that I would like to be part of, but I also recognize the time is right for me to pass this torch to others. I am looking forward to enjoying more time with family and friends.”
“Ron’s loyalty and passion for the community have always been evident, and his departure will be noticed by many,” said city manager Deborah Sargent. “The depth of Ron’s corporate knowledge and his strategic lens will be sorely missed.”
