TRURO - Jim Lambert is the new general manager for the Central Nova Scotia Civic Centre.
Lambert, the current manager of recreation and program operations for the Town of Windsor, will bring more than 20 years of facility management and recreational programming experience to the new facility.
He will assume his duties on Feb. 27.
"I am thrilled with this opportunity and really look forward to working with the entire community to make this remarkable facility the best it can possibly be," said Lambert in a news release.
The recruitment process produced many fine candidates, said Colchester County mayor and civic centre interim operating board member Bob Taylor.
"We were immediately drawn to Jim's understanding of our needs, his grassroots approach and his commitment to serve the best interests of our community," said Taylor, in a release. "Having worked in both the private and public sectors, Jim recognizes the value of community partnerships and this, combined with his entrepreneurial spirit, well positions us to achieve many great things."
The interim operating board is presently recruiting citizen representatives from the Truro and Colchester area to fill six remaining vacancies on the board.
Three citizens each from the Town of Truro and Municipality of Colchester will be considered through an application process, which closes on Feb. 24. The board and general manager will both play key roles in providing operational leadership, integrity and responsible management for the facility when it opens in September.
