Former Kamloops city councillor John O’Fee has been appointed to Interior Health’s board of directors.

“John has demonstrated over the years that he has the strategic vision and dedication to help support the work of the board of Interior Health,” Health Minister Terry Lake said.

O’Fee is a lawyer and faculty member at Thompson Rivers University, where he teaches in the School of Business and Economics and the School of Law.

“For years, John O’Fee has served his community with extraordinary dedication and integrity,” said Interior Health Board chair Erwin Malzer, of Kelowna. “We look forward to working with John to further strengthen the work of the board and Interior Health.”

O’Fee has previously served as a school trustee and board chair, regional district director and chair of the Thompson Nicola Hospital District.  He was also CEO of the Tk’emlups Indian Band, president of the Kamloops Airport Authority Society, president of the TRU Foundation and a director with the BC Municipal Finance Authority,

O’Fee also serves on the Health Professions Review Board and recently left his role as a director of the finance and audit committee of the Provincial Health Services Authority to join the board of Interior Health.

O’Fee has earned recognition for his community and charitable work with a Distinguished Alumni award from Thompson Rivers University, a BC Community Achievement Award and, most recently, an appointment to Queen’s Counsel in 2015.

O’Fee will be joining the board’s finance and audit and strategic priorities committees.
