The Parksville Qualicum Beach News has a new publisher.

Peter McCully takes over the helm this week, coming over to The News from the Gulf Islands Driftwood on Salt Spring Island. He was the publisher there for four years and worked as a sales consultant, manager and associate publisher for a total of 12 years.

Peter brings with him a record of excellence, recognized by provincial and national newspaper associations.

Peter and his wife Barb are looking forward to relocating to the area and becoming part of the community.

Peter takes over for retiring publisher Tom Thomas. McCully will also assume the role of sales manager.

“It’s been a fun three years in Oceanside,” said Tom. “I’ve enjoyed our association with many fine people and businesses.

“I know with a wealth of experience, Peter will bring success to the paper. I wish him well.”
