The City of Penticton has begun to transition its staff leadership.
General manager of infrastructure Mitch Moroziuk will be retiring in early January, 2021.
“Mitch’s steady and thorough approach to overseeing the city’s infrastructure services, projects and people is greatly appreciated and respected,” said Penticton’s chief administrative officer Donny van Dyk in a press release “On behalf of all city staff, it’s been a tremendous pleasure working with Mitch.”
Moroziuk has provided his expertise in engineering, utilities, public works and parks to council meetings since he started working in city hall in 2003.
Kristen Dixon will be taking over the role of general manager of infrastructure on her return to Penticton, having most recently served as the chief administrative officer for the City of Port Coquitlam.
“I’m pleased to announce Mr. Moroziuk’s successor as Ms. Kristen Dixon. Kristen’s return to Penticton is accompanied by a considerable calibre of municipal leadership in the areas of senior administration, engineering, public works and utilities,” said van Dyk in the release. “We look forward to Kristen joining our leadership team.”
From 2005 to 2010, Dixon held the role of assistant city engineer for the City of Penticton, after which she was appointed to the position of streets and capital projects manager for the City of Kamloops, followed by director of engineering and public works for the City of Port Coquitlam. She holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Alberta and a Master of Business Administration from the University of British Columbia.
