SATBIR Singh Cheema will be Progressive Intercultural Community Services Society’s (PICS) new Chief Executive Officer, succeeding Charan Gill. Cheema ia currently the Director of Employment Programs and Planning at PICS.
PICS founder Gill is stepping down after 30 years of service to the organization.
Gill said, “I am extremely pleased to hand over the baton to someone with whom I have worked closely for many years. I am rest assured that PICS will be in safe and able hands.”
He also said that Cheema’s familiarity with the culture and working environment of PICS and the community it has been serving was most definitely an added asset.
Cheema has worked for PICS for the last 19 years. Under Cheema, PICS Employment Programs rose to new heights with the addition of a number of new programs including the successful Mega Job Fair, touted as the largest career fair in all of Metro Vancouver.
Cheema said: “The road ahead is indeed exciting but I need the support of all community members.”
