A new director brings an extensive resume to continuing studies and corporate development at Okanagan College.

Dr. Dennis Silvestrone has been chosen as OC’s new director of continuing studies and corporate development, assuming the role beginning in March 2014.

He brings with him extensive experience as director of continuing studies and corporate development, including positions at Vancouver Island University, North Island College and most recently, at the University of Manitoba.

“Dr. Silvestrone’s experience in the administration and development of continuing studies programs in post-secondary will be of value to Okanagan College as we continue to answer employer and regional demand for short-term training solutions and reskilling programming,” said Dr. Andrew Hay, Okanagan College’s vice president education. “He will provide the strong guidance needed to move us into the opportunities associated with corporate development.”
