KAMLOOPS – Nearly four months after the retirement of Sally Edwards a permanent replacement has been found to fill the role of finance director with the City of Kamloops.

The city announced the hiring of Kathy Humphrey, current Director of Finance at Thompson Rivers, today, April 21. Humphrey has held this position since 2008, and before then worked for both B.C. Lottery Corp. and KPMG in Vancouver.

“We’re looking for people who can manage people,” CAO David Trawin said.

After two rounds of interviews and over 100 applications, the hiring team of city directors said Humphrey stood out due to her escalating level of responsibility from her current roles to now. Trawin also cited her communication skills, and said she ‘fit with the management team.’

Humphrey will start her role with the city June 1, 2015.
