Proctor replaces Broderick as head of recreation, cultural services in Gravenhurst
GRAVENHURST — Gravenhurst has another new department head.
Following the dismissal of Debbie Broderick before Christmas, the town has hired a replacement with cottage roots in town.
In a news release Tuesday, the town announced that after completing an executive search, they hired Marta Proctor as its director of recreation, arts and cultural services.
Mayor Paisley Donaldson said in the release: “I am pleased that Marta has agreed to serve as the new leader….
“During her career in the public service sector her experience has been in the delivery of a wide spectrum of parks, recreation and cultural services. She has been involved in management of diverse operations and strategic planning at both the divisional and corporate level.”
LastyearTown Council approved a corporate reorganization that separated the recreation, arts and culture related services from the infrastructure and community services department to create a new recreation, arts and culture department.
A resident of Thornbury, Proctor has over 25 years of relevant experience and currently serves the Town of Collingwood as its director of parks recreation and culture. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from YorkUniversity and a diploma in public administration from the University of Western Ontario. She began her career as a recreation programmer with the Town of Vaughan and has served both the City of Toronto and the Halton Conservation Authority, as well.
“Our family has enjoyed cottage life in Gravenhurst for two generations and we are drawn by the warm sense of community and active lifestyle options,” said Proctor. “It will be a great privilege to be actively involved in the future planning and development of this vibrant municipality.”
