People on the move – Jim Colquhoun

Jim Colquhoun  Senior advisor, human resources at Elk Falls Division has decided to leave the company to pursue other opportunities effective Dec. 31. Jim joined Catalyst in 1997 at Elk Falls and has been a key member of the HR team at the mill.

We have relied on Jim’s expert knowledge and counsel on many issues over the years both at Elk Falls and across the company. We wish him every success in his new opportunity with the Central Okanagan School District in Kelowna.

  • It’s not often that I post staff movements on the site but most of our members have had contact with Jim the last few years. We’ve had a lot of interaction with Jim during our standing committee, kraft mill closure, cost savings meetings and of course the last year with the curtailment. I have always found him to be easy to deal with, he has a great amount of integrity and I wish him the best in his new career.
    Just one more person that Elk couldn’t afford to lose… but did.

  1. I can’t imagine that you will be writing one of these about Richard Garneau leaving, will you?

  2. Jim is a straight shooter.
    He would always tell his reasoning and logic if he turned down a request.
    He might not always agree with you but at least you knew the reason why.

    Best of luck to Jim in his new endeavours.
