The Office of the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) and Corporate Officer's Office is comprised of Pitt Meadows City Council, the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) and Corporate Officer's Office.
For the purpose of reporting, the Office of the CAO encompasses both City Council and CAO driven initiatives and accomplishments.
Pitt Meadows City Council delivers a vision and strategic plan for the City and it’s the responsibility of the Chief Administrative Officer to ensure City staff is aligned with the plan and moving toward this vision.
As CAO, Mark ensures council has the right information to make their decisions, and that City staff delivers on council’s priorities and strategic planning objectives. Mark has been in the City's CAO role since December 2015.
Mark worked in the public and private sector before working for the City of Port Moody in 1999. He has worked for municipal governments for 16 years in a wide variety of areas including IT, purchasing, facilities, finance, and risk management. He is a member of the Certified Management Association and the Certified Payroll Association, which together adds up to nine years of training and certification.
“Local government has the biggest impact on people and my role is to deliver a strategic plan that fulfills the mandate set by council,” Mark explains. “A municipality can’t offer a good quality of life to the residents, if it’s not listening to their needs.”
In his spare time, Mark volunteers with the finance committee in his hometown of Anmore. A sports enthusiast, Mark is often found on the soccer pitch participating in his men’s league.
