New executive director for the Downtown Kelowna Association

The Downtown Kelowna Association (DKA) has officially announced its new executive director.

After over a decade as Group Program Director for Bell Media, Mark Burley will now take up his new role with the DKA.

During his time with Bell Media, Burley oversaw programming for all 22 Bell Media stations, along with managing large employee and stakeholder teams, all while working on Bernard Avenue.

“We are delighted to have Mark on board as our Executive Director. Throughout Mark’s long career in radio, he has demonstrated himself to be an accomplished leader and mentor, and a committed community-builder. On behalf of the DKA’s board of directors, I welcome Mark to the team,” Yarden Gershony, Downtown Kelowna Association President.

“We are excited to work with Mark closely in the years to come as we continue to make Downtown Kelowna the best place in the region to work, live and play.”

“The DKA is a strong organization that I am proud to join and I am excited to take on this new challenge," said Burley.

Downtown Kelowna is an exciting place with great potential for growth and I am looking forward to joining the staff and the membership of the DKA, while working with the City of Kelowna, to further advance the growth of a strong and vibrant Downtown community.”
