PRRD names Shawn Dahlen CAO

The Peace River Regional District is removing the interim tag and naming Shawn Dahlen as the Chief Administrative Officer.

Dahlen was the Deputy CAO since 2017, and had been the acting CAO since former CAO Chris Cvik was released without cause in May.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to be the CAO for the regional district,” says Dahlen. “I look forward to working with this regional board and achieving all of their initiatives.”

Prior to joining the PRRD last year, Dahlen had been the Director of Infrastructure at the City of Dawson Creek, where he had worked for 18 years.

Chair Brad Sperling had announced the decision at the beginning of today’s board meeting.

“We’re happy,” says Sperling. “He knows us, he knows the community. It’s been like the longest job interview for him.”

Sperling notes that Dahlen was one of several candidates, and that they will post for the position of Deputy CAO to replace Dahlen in that capacity.
