Douglas has almost 18 years of public-sector experience, including 10 years as director of financial services for the City of Powell River and two years as manager of finance at the District of Ucluelet.

“Having worked with David in Ucluelet, I am confident that he will be a great addition to our team. We look forward to him leading the financial services team,” said Andrew Yeates, Sechelt’s chief administrative officer, in a release announcing Douglas’s appointment.
