Just weeks before he is to leave his post and move to Summerland, chief financial officer David Svetlichny has received the Canadian Award for Financial Reporting Achievement.
The award is handed out annually by the Government Finance Officers Association.
It was established in 1986 “to encourage and assist Canadian local governments to go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles … to prepare comprehensive annual financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure.”
This marks the fourth award for in sixth years for Svetlichny.
He recently announced he is leaving Oliver to take over the CFO post in Summerland.
