A new sheriff is coming to town to handle Coquitlam School District's books.
On Wednesday, the district announced it had hired Mark Ferrari as secretary treasurer, effective Oct. 15, 2013.
According to a SD43 press release, he will be overlooking financial and corporate operations, legal affairs, purchasing, policies and procedures, financial information management, risk management, maintenance, facilities, caretaking and long range planning and working with external and internal stakeholders. "Mark has significant experience as a senior financial professional in several large organizations, including the Federal Government of Canada, and more recently as the assistant director, financial planning and Capital Equity with the City of Burnaby," the press release stated.
Ferrari will replace acting secretary treasurer Guy Bonnefoy, who took the role on a contract basis last April.
The position was formerly held by former secretary treasurer Rick Humphreys, who left the district in the fall of 2012.
