Marv Beer has taken over as the new president of the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board.
The Salmon Arm realtor, broker, and brokerage owner was sworn in during OMREB’s annual general meeting, April 5.
He is joined on the new board of directors by vice-president Michael Loewen of Kelowna; Tina Cosman of Salmon Arm; Kim Heizmann and Joe Pearson of the Vernon area; and Dean Desrosiers, Don Gagnon, Kent Jorgenson, Sheryl Lobsinger, and Cliff Shillington of the Kelowna region.
Beer takes over for former president Tanis Read, who will continue serving as this year’s past president.
Beer has been a licensed realtor since 2004 and worked in both Alberta and B.C. An OMREB member for six years, he’s been on the board of directors since 2015, and last year served as vice-president.
“It’s an exciting time to be a part of an organization that is fast evolving into one that is leading edge and forward-looking,” Beer said in a news release. “I’m excited to play a role alongside my fellow directors.”
The new board of directors has already taken office and will continue its work of supporting the more than 1200 local realtors who make up OMREB’s membership.
OMREB is a member-governed association representing realtors and real estate offices within the southern interior region of British Columbia, which spans from Peachland to Revelstoke.
