Westerner Park has found its new CEO.
On Friday, the organization announced Shelly Flint has been named CEO.
“I was thrilled at the opportunity to return to Central Alberta, where I grew up,” said Flint.
“Leading this purpose-driven organization will allow me to contribute to my community and affect meaningful change.”
For the past two decades, Shelly has served as a senior executive, spearheading diverse teams within Alberta’s entertainment and finance sectors, including a stint as CFO at the Calgary Stampede.
Tyler Nightingale, president of the board of directors, said Westerner Park is thrilled to welcome Flint as CEO following a “comprehensive search.”
“Her extensive experience, skill set, and knowledge align seamlessly with the strategic direction of Westerner Park, ensuring a positive and enduring impact on both the organization and the community at large,” said Nightingale.
Former CEO Mike Olesen stepped down earlier this year to accept a position with the City of Red Deer’s leadership team.
