After combing applications “from across Canada,” Clearview School Division announced it has hired Peter Neale to fill the position of associate superintendent, director of business and finance.

Neale worked for the Grande Prairie Public School District before accepting the Stettler position.

Neale has also worked for Campbell River School District, Peace River School Division and Grasslands Regional Division No. 6.

Superintendent John Bailey said Neale comes to Clearview with experience in managing a diverse portfolio and with a solid financial management background.

“Peter’s experience, training and commitment to lifelong learning helped make him our choice for the position,” Bailey said.

Neale and his wife, Helene, have two sons — Matthew, 10, and Alexandre, seven.

In a news release, Neale said he’s looking forward to the Clearview move.

“I am excited to be given the opportunity to use my education and experiences to serve Clearview School Division in the vital role of associate superintendent, business and finance,” he said.

“I look forward to working with the various professionals in the division to ensure all students have access to quality education, and keep the division in a good fiscal position at the same time.”

Bailey said Neale has held positions of increasing responsibility in his time with school divisions, holding executive-level responsibility for support operations, transportation, facilities, technology and safety.

“We are looking forward to Peter joining our team, beginning June 25,” Bailey said.

“We welcome him and his family to the Clearview family.”

The last day of work for outgoing associate superintendent Lewis Hill is June 24.

Hill and his wife, Dawn, leave for Vernon, B.C., where he has accepted a similar position with the school division at Vernon, beginning Aug. 1.
