Jill Sadler brings a passion for entrepreneurship and small business to the role

College of the Rockies’ President and CEO Paul Vogt is pleased to announce Jill Sadler’s appointment as manager of the Golden campus. Sadler began her role on May 2, 2022.

“We have heard that many regional employers would like to expand their relationships with the College, and I feel Jill is the right leader to facilitate those connections,” Vogt said. “She has a keen interest in small businesses, as a small business owner herself, and with her extensive experience in post-secondary, she is-well positioned to help the Golden campus thrive and grow.”

Sadler brings a Master of Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology, along with a Bachelor of Health Administration (with Honours) and diplomas in Ecosystem Management and Recreational and Leisure Services – Special Event Management. She has held the position of Executive Director for both non-profit and for-profit organization.

Born and raised in Lake Country, Ontario, Sadler has been vacationing in Golden for the last 7 years and is thrilled to now call it home. Her hobbies include hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, mountain biking, canoeing, and kayaking, making Golden an ideal location for her to settle.

“In addition to vacationing here, I previously lived in Golden for 8 months and I’m excited to return for this position at the College, and to call Golden my home,” Sadler said. “I am coming to this role from a position of listening and learning. I hope to work with local citizens and community partners to help meet the needs of education in our community as I learn deeper about the community needs.”

Sadler encourages those with a skill they could share or suggestions for programming to reach out.

“I encourage people from all walks of life to reach out to golden@cotr.bc.ca if you have a skill or talent that you could teach a small group in our community,” Sadler said. “We are actively looking for new ideas to bring to the community for our seasonal programming.”
