Gjoa Haven has a new senior administrative officer (SAO) in Ed Devereaux. He moves up from finance director to take over from David Stockley, who has accepted the SAO role in Pond Inlet.
Devereaux was formerly an SAO in Cape Dorset and had acted in the role temporarily in Gjoa Haven, as needed.
The hamlet has already conducted interviews for a new finance director, Mayor Joanni Sallerina said.
In addition, economic development officer Bob Cheetham recently left the community. Sallerina said a potential candidate has also been identified for that position.
“Like they say, when it rains, it pours,” the mayor said of staff turnover.
