The Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board (OMREB), the largest regional real estate board in the B.C. interior, swore in a new Board of Directors during its 60th Annual General Meeting recently in Kelowna.
Michael Loewen, a sales rep with Royal LePage Kelowna, was elected president, succeeding Marv Beer, who will continue as past president.
“I’m honoured and tremendously excited to lead a talented, dedicated team charged with supporting the work of 1,300 local Realtors in the pursuit of professional excellence in service to real estate consumers,” he says.
Loewen, who has worked in both Alberta and B.C., holds a master’s degree in non-profit management and, alongside his background in the real estate profession, brings extensive experience in business and governance to the board table, says OMREB. Kim Heizmann succeeds Loewen in the role of vice president.
Also on the Board of Directors: Tina Cosman, Kim Davies, Dean Desrosiers, Don Gagnon, Brad Marsh, Jerry Redman, Karen Singbeil and Bob Wood.
