DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – The Peace River Regional District has named Shawn Dahlen as the new CAO of the PRRD.

“I look forward to working with Mr. Dahlen,” Chair Brad Sperling said “Shawn comes to the position with municipal experience, he knows the communities and understands the challenges that the Regional District is facing”
Dahlen joined the PRRD almost two years ago as the Deputy CAO. Dahlen has 19 years local Government experience, including a background in civil engineering.
“I am excited about this appointment. The Peace River Regional District Team looks forward to supporting the Board in their initiatives,” said Shawn.
