Gill Henderson takes position at Okanagan College

Dear colleagues,

I write you today to announce that Gill Henderson will be moving on from her position at UBC to join our colleagues at Okanagan College as their new Director of Human Resources. While I’m sad to see her go, I’m also excited for her new opportunity to contribute to the success of post-secondary education here in the Okanagan.

Gill joined UBCO in July of 2017 and has been a crucial member of the team ever since. She has led Human Resources on our campus with deft professionalism — tackling very complex issues while staying fully committed to making the university an equitable, enjoyable and fulfilling place to work.

Let me again extend my thanks to Gill for her service over the years and I wish her the very best in her new position. Her last day will be July 30, 2021.

I’m also very grateful for Kristin Cacchioni, who will be stepping in as acting Executive Director of Human Resources at UBCO over the coming months.

Kristin has been with UBC since 2003 and in a number of HR roles since 2005. She joined UBCO in 2016 as the Senior Manager for Faculty and Employee Relations and comes to this role with a wealth of experience.

I’m sure many of you know and have worked with Kristin so please join me in welcoming her as we look to recruit permanent leadership for the HR team in due course.
