City of Revelstoke hires new CAO

Allan Chabot announced as new Chief Administrative Officer for City of Revelstoke.

There’s a new top manager at Revelstoke city hall.

Allan Chabot was hired as the City of Revelstoke’s new Chief Administrative Officer, the city announced Friday morning.

“I am really looking forward to getting to work and live in Revelstoke and help the mayor and council achieve their goals,” he said in a news release. “I feel that the issues and opportunities facing mountain resort communities that include traditional resource-based employment are really in my wheelhouse and my experiences in Invermere, Golden and Fernie should serve me well. I want to immere myself again in mountain culture and be part of the great Revelstoke community.”

Chabot comes to the city from Merritt, B.C., where he has served as CAO for the past year. Before that, he was CAO of Fernie, B.C. He has also worked in municipal government in Golden and Prince George. He was mayor of Invermere from 1988 to 1990 and an alderman prior to that.

“Allan’s wealth of experience and government knowledge will make him a key addition to the City of Revelstoke,” said Mayor Mark  McKee in a news release. “I’m confident that Allan will play a key role in providing and implementing high quality leadership to accomplish the goals and objectives set by this new council.”

Chabot replaces Tim Palmer, who retired in February.

The city will be hosting a meet and greet with Chabot on Friday, Aug. 20, from 12-2 p.m.
