Comox Valley Record sales consultant Dave Hamilton is leaving one award-winning newspaper to join another.

Hamilton becomes publisher Monday of the Fernie Free Press in the southeast corner of B.C.

“The Free Press is an extraordinary community paper,” he says.

“The team there has built a paper that has become a model for papers this size, and won first place for newspaper excellence in the British Columbia and Yukon Community Newspaper Awards.”

The Comox Valley Record, a fellow Black Press paper, also finished first in general excellence last year in its circulation category.

Hamilton has worked at the Record for the past three years. Before that, he was a business resource manager for five years with Comox Valley Economic Development. He’s been a regional director for the BCSPCA for six years, two years on the executive and strategic planning committee.

Hamilton grew up on Vancouver Island, and went to school at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo, where he completed his bachelor degree in marketing with a double minor in human resources and economics. Hamilton has also completed his third year of his bachelor of business administration (accounting designation).
