The Central Coast Regional District is pleased to welcome Darla Blake as their new Chief Administrative Officer. Darla is a Canadian citizen returning to Canada after living and working in Australia and New Zealand for a number of years.  She has 20 plus years’ experience owning/managing several successful businesses in Canada and New Zealand as well as 13 plus years working in local government management positions. She has held steadily more senior positions and has proven her ability to lead departments, work closely with Council and other department heads, build trusting relationships, and engage employees.

Darla holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Public Management, a Certificate in Economic Development, has civil emergency management training, and is a graduate of a Personal and Business Coaching Licensing Program. Some of Darla’s family spend their summers up the Dean River where they have owned a fishing lodge for a number of years. Darla looks forward to bringing her skills to the Central Coast Regional District and becoming an active member of the community.

The board of directors would like to take this opportunity to thank Isabell Hadford, in her capacity as Interim CAO, for all her help during this transition and offer her their best wishes.
