Mark Sakai has left his position as executive director of the Delta Museum and Archives to take a job with the Greater Vancouver Homebuilders' Association.
Sakai spent four years with the museum, finishing at the end of November.
Sakai, who was previously employed at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery in Richmond, said he enjoyed his four years in Delta.
He will serve as director of government relations with the homebuilders' association.
Speaking from a homebuilder's perspective, Sakai said a continued challenge for the Corporation of Delta is to find ways to encourage a mix of housing types that allow people to retire in place.
Gabrielle Martin has assumed the role as acting executive director of the museum and archives.
