Premier Clark announces key appointments

Premier Christy Clark has announced two key appointments in the Office of the Premier as government continues to control spending and grow the economy.

Dan Doyle, first appointed on Sept. 24, 2012, will continue as chief of staff to the Premier.

“Dan Doyle is a public servant of the first order,” said Premier Clark. “He serves British Columbia with distinction and integrity, and I want to thank him for his ongoing commitment as he continues in his role as my chief of staff.”

Doyle served for 36 years with British Columbia’s Ministry of Transportation, including four years as deputy minister.

Doyle is a civil engineer by training and was given the Order of British Columbia in 2010.

Premier Clark has also confirmed the re-appointment of John Dyble as deputy minister to the Premier, cabinet secretary and head of the public service.

“I’m very happy that John has agreed to continue and ensure that government stays firmly focused on our priorities,” said Premier Clark.

Dyble was first appointed deputy minister to the Premier on March 14, 2011. He has served British Columbia in a number of capacities since he joined the public service in 1989. His most senior public service roles have included deputy minister of transportation, deputy minister of forests and range, and deputy minister of health.

Dyble has a bachelor of applied science in civil engineering and is a registered professional engineer. He also has a master’s degree in business administration. Both of his degrees are from the University of British Columbia.
