The Town of Whitecourt is proud to announce the appointment of Drew Hadfield as the new Director of Infrastructure.  

For Drew, this will be a return to our community.  Drew previously worked for the Town of Whitecourt (between 1997 and 2006) in supporting the development and engineering functions of the community before heading to BC.  Since that time, he has worked with the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District, Comox Valley Regional District and, for the past 14 years, with the City of Campbell River as the Director of Operations. 

“I am excited to be returning to Whitecourt in this role,” said Drew Hadfield. “The community has grown significantly since I left in 2006, and I look forward to supporting the Town operations in this continued growth.”

As the Director of Infrastructure, Mr. Hadfield will oversee public works operations; fleet maintenance; infrastructure and road maintenance operations; utilities operations; engineering services; parks and open spaces maintenance; and, the Whitecourt Cemetery. 

“Drew brings a wealth of experience in municipal operations and infrastructure services,“ added Peter Smyl, Chief Administrative Officer.   “I look forward to working with him as part of our senior management team.”
