Director Don Gamble to Retire

Don Gamble, Director, Information Systems, will retire May 31, after 12 years at Engineers and Geoscientists BC.

“It is with mixed feelings that I leave the organization,” said Don. “While I’m excited to explore new opportunities, I am also stilled by the thought of no longer working with our staff. I’m confident that our team will move on to even greater accomplishments, and that, through collaboration, the organization will continue to transform. I look forward to watching this growth.”

During his tenure with the organization, Don was the driving force behind several initiatives that modernized information technology and systems, which enabled the organization to better serve registrants and stakeholders. This included leading the development of the Member Relationship Management (MRM) system—a fully custom database that allows registrants and firms to independently manage several activities. Don Also led the project to create the organization's built-in-house Competency-Based Assessment (CBA) system. This national system is now in use by 6 other regulators, cementing the organization’s position as a leader in technology and innovation for regulators across Canada.;

“Don is a true visionary, leader, and mentor who leaves behind an incredible legacy at our organization,” said Heidi Yang, P.Eng., CEO of Engineers and Geoscientists BC. “He has truly lived and breathed our value of innovation, building technology solutions that have touched thousands of registrants across British Columbia and beyond. He is thoughtful, forward-thinking, supportive, and never afraid to question the status quo. He will certainly be missed.”

A search process is currently underway for Don’s role. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply through the recruiting agency PFM.

The organization and staff wish Don health and happiness as he embarks on his well-earned retirement.
