Thom Tischik is stepping away after almost 20 years involved in business and tourism in Revelstoke.

Tischik resigned as the marketing manager of the Revelstoke Accommodation Association last week to take up a similar position as the executive director for Travel Penticton.

“The travelling back and forth to Revelstoke was getting a little bit hard,” said Tischik, who lives in Vernon. “I think because I was working remotely and the job has grown so much, there needs to be someone in town all the time to assume the responsibilities. I thought it was fair to me and everyone else to do it that way.”

Tischik first came to Revelstoke in 1998 to work as the tourism marketing coordinator for the Chamber of Commerce. He also served as executive director of the chamber from 2003 to 2007.

In 2008, the newly-formed RAA hired him to run its tourism marketing.

“I’ve absolutely loved just about every minute of my work with the community,” he said. “I’m leaving on a high note, I’m leaving things in good shape.”

Norm Langlois, the president of RAA, said they were sad to see Tischik move on and that he would be “sorely missed.”

“Thom has been the foundation of putting together our marketing strategy and marketing plans, in conjunction with the board,” said Langlois. “I would say he’s done an excellent job helping put Revelstoke on the map.

He said RAA has begun the process of hiring Tischik’s replacement.
