The Board of Directors of Sorrento Centre has named Peter Roundhill, a well-known Anglican business manager, educational leader and consultant who has been connected to Sorrento Centre for most of his life, as Interim Executive Director effective May 1 of the Shuswap Lake camp. Current director Christopher Lind is on medical leave.
Having spent at least a week every summer at Sorrento with his family while growing up in Vernon, Peter Roundhill also served as a youth staff volunteer and later as the youth coordinator. He returned again to the Centre in 1995 with his wife, Christina, on a contract basis to work on a number of projects, including a Sorrento Staff reunion.
The Roundhill family, who now number four, have been regulars for the past several years at the Thanksgiving Associates weekend. Peter Roundhill brings with him a wealth of experience in management and non-profit work, including overseas as a language school operations director, and as Executive Director of a United Church camp near Victoria.
