Posted: October 25, 2017

PRINCE RUPERT – CityWest is pleased to announce that Don Holkestad has joined the Board of Directors, effective October 16, 2017.

Holkestad served as CEO of CityWest for 37 years, before his retirement in December 2016. Before taking on the role of CEO, he worked as a telephone installer, Central Office Technician, Operations Manager, and Telephony Director.

“Don was instrumental in pursuing the operational goals of the company during his four-year term as CEO,” said Bob Long, Chair of the CityWest Board. “He brings a great deal of technological expertise to the Board table, and I look forward to some invigorating and interesting discussions as we guide the company into the future.”

The CityWest Board of Directors is composed of six members, who are appointed by the company’s sole shareholder, the City of Prince Rupert. For more information on the Board, please click here.

A big thank you to CityWest for their support and service last week to troubleshoot both cable/pvr and internet issues. On the phone, support staff were friendly, knowledgeable, patient and helpful. Service was prompt, both with call backs and house calls...and I felt that each staff member went above and beyond to provide excellent service. It is obvious that friendly service and customer satisfaction are priorities at CityWest - at the counter, on the phone and in my home. I am a loyal customer because they care.
