The Board of Trustees is proud to introduce Mr. Rodney Dieleman as the new Chief Administrative Officer of the Salt Spring Island Fire Protection District starting June 1st, 2022.
Rodney comes to us from the Province of Manitoba where he was the Director of Finance and Administration for both the Department of Environment, Climate and Parks as well as the Department of Natural Resources and Northern Development. In those roles, he administered contracts with 11 municipal fire departments, working with operating budgets exceeding $200 million dollars.
Rodney has 25 years of practical experience managing complex financial systems with diverse stakeholders and is a graduate of Business Administration. Having worked in an executive capacity for the Manitoba government, Rodney is well qualified for the position and will be a tremendous asset to our community. We are lucky to have him.
With the appointment of Jamie Holmes to Fire Chief and Rodney Dieleman to CAO, the Board of Trustees has put in place a competent management team that is prepared for any challenge and ready to move emergency services forward.
Please join the Board of Trustees in congratulating and welcoming CAO Rodney Dieleman!
