Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

The embattled Portland Hotel Society has a new Interim Executive Director.

Ted Bruce, most recently the Executive Director, Population Health for Vancouver Coastal Health takes over the position.

This follows the outer of Mark Townsend two months ago due to financial irregularities.

Board Chair Faye Wightman says Bruce’s 35 years of senior leadership experience in various public sector and non-profit organizations will be invaluable as the Society moves forward.

He’s signed a one-year contract.
