work experience

For several years, David Berrington, FCPHR has been a driving force for HR in British Columbia as an educator, consultant and as a passionate proponent of the profession. As past-chair of CPHR BC & Yukon from 2004-2006, David’s involvement with the association goes back two decades to when he joined the Strategic Planning Task Force during a period of critical decision-making. That same acumen also served Berrington and the profession on the national front through his Board of Directors involvement with CPHR Canada.Through his consulting practice, David provides strategic and operational human resources consulting and recruitment services to growing companies across B.C. David’s most recent focus has been helping to advance the burgeoning liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector to develop energy projects in the Province. David continues to thrive in diverse settings, with client sectors that include construction, non-profits, technology, management consulting, education and engineering. A lifelong learner, David’s impact on the evolution of HR education has been similarly extensive: ranging from his inaugural role with HR Development Canada as manager of the HR Centre for Students in Kamloops to his tenure on the Advisory Committee for the BCIT HR Management Program.
