PENTICTON - Penticton is losing its Chief Administrative Officer.

Peter Weeber will be leaving the employ of the City of Penticton to take on a position in the private sector, according to a media release issued by the city today, Jan. 9.

“Peter will be missed. Council was very much looking forward to working with him over the next four years and benefitting from his valuable knowledge of local government,” Mayor John Vassilaki said in the release.

“He has been a tremendous asset to Penticton and served as a strong leader who understood the business of local government and the role that a proactive CAO plays in the community, leading the corporation and advising council.”

“It would be difficult to express in words how grateful I am for the privilege of working with council past and present, my team, city staff and the community,”  Weeber said in the release. “I leave the city for a new opportunity knowing we have the right leadership in place and a council that is committed to doing what is best for the community. Thank you.”

The Penticton & Wine Country Chamber of Commerce also issued a statement this afternoon, thanking Weeber for his dedicated service to the CIty of Penticton.

"Peter's tireless work ethic, open communication and passion for the city will certainly be missed," vice-president Don Brown said.

Council and Weeber will work on a transition plan over the next few weeks.

Weeber is Penticton’s third CAO since 2010. He took on the position following the resignation of Eric Sorensen in 2016, who held the position for a year.  Prior to that, Annette Antoniak held the position from 2010 to 2015.
