"It was a tremendous honour and privilege to work with the community, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time here," Walker said in a release. "Through the hard work and dedication of our management team and staff — along with the leadership of progressive Chiefs and Council — I am proud of the many accomplishmenets that we've been able to realize."
During his tenure, Walker shifted Lil'wat into a surplus financial situation, increased staff engagement, established key partnerships and improved communications.
