The regional dean of the college’s Salmon Arm Campus and the Revelstoke Centre, is no longer employed.

Okanagan College is confirming Jim Barmby, the regional dean of the college’s Salmon Arm Campus and the Revelstoke Centre, is no longer employed.

“An acting dean has been appointed, Ross Tyner, who will serve until a replacement is recruited,” says Allan Coyle, a spokesperson for the college.

Okanagan College staff were informed Wednesday of the change in leadership at the local campus.

“Jim served for six years in the role and we have expressed appreciation for his contributions,” adds Coyle.

Barmby came to Okanagan College in 2009 following stints in administration at Thompson Rivers University as well as other post-secondary positions in Alberta.

A job posting for the regional dean position is expected to be issued in the near future.
