Chamber hires new manager

Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce finds replacement in Hart

Kori Hart has taken over the role as the executive manager for the Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce.

A new executive manager has been hired by the Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce.

Kori Hart was hired to take over the position from Les Jaster, as he prepares to take on his bucket list of travels and experiences. Hart started Dec. 1 and has already been getting tips and tricks that Jaster has learned from being in the role.

In an interview, Hart said she has some big shoes to fill in taking over for Jaster. She is pleased to have his training before he concludes his work.

“I’m looking forward to working with the business community,” she added.

While she has some thoughts about potential ideas for the chamber, Hart said her main goal for now is to get comfortable in the new role.

Along with her banking training seven years as assistant manager for BMO and having her own business, Hart was also a member of the the chamber’s board of directors, something she feels adds to her experience for the role. Now that she is taking over as executive manager, Hart is stepping down from the board position.

She knows the support from the board is strong. “I have a fantastic board behind me.”

Hart added that she enjoys being able to learn from Jaster considering his experience as the executive manager.
