“Coming into this team I knew the fans were the best,” he said. “But quickly I also got to learn we have the best volunteers and the best sponsors who all want to see this team succeed.”

The Bulldogs organization thanked Campbell for his dedication to the hockey club in Friday’s release.

“Tali has served both this team and our community with all his heart and we appreciate the enthusiasm and energy that he brought to the table,” said Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society president Ron Paulson. “In the time he worked for the ‘Dogs he became a fan favourite and will be missed by many.

“On behalf of the entire board of directors, I would like to wish Tali the very best going forward. We know that his talent and ambition will ensure his success in whatever role he chooses in the future.”

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs will begin the search for a new director of business operations immediately. Campbell will continue working for the Bulldogs until September 30.
