Chief Willie Sellars has announced, ‘Williams Lake Indian Band has hired Aaron Manella as our new Chief Administrative Officer.”
Aaron was recruited by the Royal Bank from Scotiabank in Williams Lake where he was an outstanding Branch Manager there and was awarded the ‘Best of the Best’ – Top Branch Manager of 2017.
Chief Sellars was ‘happy with the ‘good fit’ Aaron provides for Williams Lake Indian Band. He comes to our people with a ‘can do’ attitude which we found was a perfect fit for Williams Lake Indian Band.
We interviewed 3 candidates from Western Canada, we reviewed many more. Aaron was the unanimous choice of the Interview Committee.
Band Council had recently engaged James R Craven @ Associates for this nation- wide Executive Search for the Band’s next CAO and are happy with the results.
Aaron began work early in November with William’s Lake Indian Band, leaving big shoes to fill in the Williams Lake Royal Bank where he had served as Branch Manager since July 2018.
