One of Regina’s top administrators is no longer employed with the city.
It was announced Friday deputy city manager and chief operations officer Brent Sjoberg is gone from his role. The vacated position will not be filled, according to city manager Chris Holden.
“Mr. Sjoberg’s departure has nothing to do with his performance, it has nothing to do with the success of the projects that he’s been involved in. It’s simply a change in structure,” he told reporters at city hall.
Instead, Holden – who just took over his new role as city manager on March 1 – said Sjoberg’s duties will be spread out to those in existing roles.
“There are others in the organization that have the knowledge and skills that we require to continue to move those things that he was responsible for forward,” he explained. “With a change in leadership at the executive level often there are changes in some of the senior positions and like I say, he’s no longer with us and I’m focused on moving forward.”
Sjoberg came to the city as a senior leader in 2007 and was heavily involved with the new Mosaic Stadium and the sewage treatment plant.
The most-recent salary figures reveal he was making $259,000.
