The CEO of the Chamber of Commerce serving Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows is leaving to follow his passion for animal welfare.
Mark Vosper, who took office in the chamber on September 27, 2021, is now the regional director of cruelty investigations.
“I want to sincerely thank the Chamber for the last six months of work in this wonderful community. The Chamber is a great organization, but my passion is more about animal welfare,” Vosper said in an online post.
The opportunity presented itself a few weeks ago, Vosper explained to The newswhen asked to review the post.
His new role will see him manage Animal Protection Officers for the Department of Cruelty throughout the Whistler to Hope area.
Vosper, who was branch manager in Vancouver before becoming branch manager in Maple Ridge between 2008 and 2013, said he was very excited about his new role.
“I mean, it’s my passion, animal welfare,” he said. “I’m really excited to go back.”
He also led the Ridge Meadows Hospice Society for six years until February 2019.
His last day in the House will be Thursday, April 14.
