Denie Olmstead has undergone a change in career and temperature.
The former executive director of the Northern Frontier Visitors Association in Yellowknife, N.W.T. began work Tuesday as the new executive officer of the Central Alberta branch of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association. The position was previously held by Otto Epp.
Olmstead lived in Yellowknife for about 10 years, before relocating to Sylvan Lake with his family nearly a year ago.
“My family and I love the area,” he said, adding that he’s enthused about joining the Canadian Home Builders’ Association.
“I’m pretty excited about the opportunity.” Olmstead said he’s familiarizing himself with operations at the association’s local branch.
“I’m going to learn from the current staff, I’m going to learn from the board and get some sort of direction of where they want to go. Then I’ll start giving my input.”
In addition to his involvement with Northern Frontier Visitors Association, Olmstead has worked in hotel and property management.
The Central Alberta branch of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association represents more than 170 member organizations involved in home-building, land development, property management and related industries in the residential construction sector.
