Sasha Angus, Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation chief executive officer, is stepping down.
The corporation announced Tuesday that Angus will leave his position Oct. 1 and that he and his family will move to Victoria.
The decision to step down was difficult, but family and health considerations are a priority, said Angus, in a press release.
The corporation’s board of directors will strike a search committee and work with a recruitment firm to help find a new CEO by November. The board and senior staff will manage day-to-day operations during the transition.
Angus has held the CEO position since 2012.
