BCLC is pleased to announce the appointment of our new Vice President of People & Culture, to be based in Kamloops.

Yabome Gilpin- Jackson [pronounced ya-bohm] will commence in the role effective April 15, 2020, working from BCLC’s Vancouver office until moving to the Kamloops head office permanently in summer 2020.

“We are delighted to welcome Yabome Gilpin-Jackson to the BCLC family, where her incredible experience in leadership and organization development will strengthen BCLC’s mandate to offer great gambling and greater good,” said Greg Moore, BCLC Interim President and CEO.

Gilpin-Jackson joins BCLC from Fraser Health Authority, where she served in progressive leadership roles for the past eight years, most recently as Executive Director, responsible for providing strategic oversight of organization development and engagement, culture transformation and talent and leadership development.

A recipient of the prestigious Harry Jerome Professional Excellence Award, Gilpin-Jackson has a Ph.D. in Human and Organizational Systems and is an adjunct faculty member at Simon Fraser University’s Beedie School of Business.

“In accepting this role I said ‘yes’ to the opportunity to work for another provincial organization and a Crown corporation that directly funds healthcare and higher education, two sectors that I have heart and passion for,” said Gilpin-Jackson. “I also said ‘yes’ to a role that is focused on organization development, leadership, a ‘OneBCLC’ culture and positively impacting B.C. communities.”

Other members of BCLC’s Executive team based in Kamloops include Pat Davis, Vice President of Business Technology and Chief Information Officer; Alan Kerr, Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Finance and Corporate Services; and Peter ter Weeme (summer 2020), Vice President, Social Purpose & Stakeholder Engagement. Interim President and CEO Greg Moore continues to divide his time between the Vancouver and Kamloops offices.

BCLC continues to recruit for a Vice President, Compliance, Legal & Security & Chief Compliance Officer to fulfil its executive complement in Vancouver and Kamloops.
