Loranne Hilton takes the helm at Highlands next month.

Oak Bay’s current director of corporate services and deputy chief administrative officer, Hilton makes the move to her new chief administrative/financial officer position on with Highlands in February.

“We are thrilled for Loranne, this is a great opportunity for her,” said Helen Koning, Oak Bay CAO.

“It’s a huge loss for the district of Oak Bay she’s served the district well for the decades she’s worked here.”

Hilton has worked 20 years in Oak Bay.

“We think it’s a great fit,” said Highlands Mayor Ken Williams, noting Hilton has an inside knowledge of the community, having previously worked for that district.

“Loranne brings a wealth of local government experience to the Highlands.”

Hilton’s last day with Oak Bay is Feb. 2. She starts in Highlands on Feb. 15.

“This is all relatively new news so we’re working in terms of how replacement will take place,” Koning said. “Our loss, Highlands’ gain, but we’re very happy for her.”
