Kwantlen elects new board chair

Peninsula's Shane King appointed to post after June election.

A Peninsula man is the new chair of Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Board of Governors.

Shane King’s June election to the post was announced Monday. The KPU alumnus – a partner in KNV Chartered Accountants LLP – was first appointed to the board in December 2008. That same year, he received the Institute of Chartered Accountants of B.C. Early Achievement Award. In 2012, King was presented the KPU Distinguished Alumni Award for Business and Industry.

“I have worked with KPU on various boards for over 10 years, and as an alumnus of KPU, I am very honoured to serve the university as board chair,” King said in an Aug. 26 statement.

Along with new vice-chair Lisa Skakun – general counsel for Coast Capital Savings – King will remain in office until July 31, 2014. For more information, visit:
