The Kamloops Blazers are adding two new faces to their advisory board this week, the team announced today (Dec. 4).
Niki Remesz of Uniquely Inspired Marketing and Matt Milovick of Thompson Rivers University (TRU) are the latest community members to be appointed to a board member position.
The team's advisory board was formed in 2016. It's a group made up of business leaders in Kamloops selected "because of their passion for hockey, personal integrity and business acumen."
In the past, Remesz served as the president of the 2018 B.C. Winter Games (Feb. 22 to 25), the chair of the TRU Alumni and Friends Association and received the City of Kamloops’ Distinguished Service Award in 2013.
Milovick has held executive positions with the Ontario College of Art and Design University and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology before coming to TRU. He is also a youth football coach in Kamloops for the Broncos.
Rob James will be stepping down from the board. The owner of RJames Western Star Freightliner had served on the board since its inception.
The Blazers also announced a change to their roster today to get down to 23 players, assigning 18-year-old defenceman Devan Harrison to the Estevan Bruins of the SJHL.
