Six join Greater Victoria Harbour Authority board

Six new directors have taken their spots on the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority board.

Two of the six, Starr McMichael and Gordon Tweddell, are independent directors selected from the community through a competitive process.

The remaining four candidates, Nicholas Banks, Ben Isitt, Nils Jensen and David Schinbein, were appointed by GVHA from nominees provided by four of its member agencies.

The nominations process focused on the skills and experience required by the board, and the six new directors will join seven others on GVHA’s 13-person board.

“We’ve appointed experienced individuals who will serve the interests of the region and add strength to GVHA’s board,” said Bill Wellburn, board chair.”
