Thompson-Nicola Regional District has a new director of finance.

The regional district announced on Wednesday that Douglas Rae has taken over the position.

Rae’s most recent position was as Chief Financial Officer at Tk’emlups Indian Band in Kamloops. Prior to working with the Tk’emlups band, he spent a number of years at KPMG in a senior management role, where he worked with municipal and non-profit organizations in implementing best practices into their finance activities.

Rae has a broad educational background and received his Chartered Accountant designation in 2002.

“Douglas will offer a new vision and fresh approach and was the best amongst a worthy group of candidates,” said Sukh Gill, the TNRD’s chief administrative officer. “So it is with great pleasure that I welcome him as the newest member of the team.”

The new director of finance has a strong interest in the arts and has been active on the volunteer board of the Western Canada Theatre Company, having served as treasurer since 2006. Rae has been invited to present seminars on public sector accounting standards and best practices at a variety of conferences.


The TNRD board is looking forward to the contribution that Rae will make to the organization. The board has full confidence that Rae will continue to ensure the financial stability and viability of the Regional District in both its capital and operating finances.
