Brock Township announced on Tuesday Sept 29 that Cobourg’s Dean Hustwick is leaving his position as Director of Community Services and going to Brock Township as their CAO. He will start in his new position on November 2. Dean joined Cobourg’s staff on April 4, 2016 with his previous position being COO of Sport Alliance Ontario. The announcement says that Dean is an accomplished and highly skilled leader with a reputation for transforming operations, driving innovation and improving organizational performance. Brock Township is located approx. on the east shoreline of Lake Simcoe with major Towns being Beaverton and Cannington. Population in 2016 was 11,642. It is the smallest Township (by population) in Durham region. Dean is quoted as saying: “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the beautiful Brock community with its deep history, heritage and endless opportunities for the future.”
The immediate impact to Cobourg’s organization may not be too significant since Teresa Behan is Deputy Director of Community Services so could presumably at least hold the fort. Dean will leave only one month after the start of Cobourg’s new CAO, Tracey Vaughan.
