I do believe I recall working with him when he was a wet behind the ears 2Lt back in the mid 80's.  Mind you, the backs of my ears weren't all that dry either....

Good for him!

And what purpose does the Director of Artillery serve?  Having not come from an artillery background, although I did do a posting to Shilo, I have no idea what the position involves.  Thanks

He is the Army commander's adviser on all things arty, including career management.  he will be the equivalent of a Regimental Colonel.
"The higher the rank, the more necessary it is that boldness should be accompanied by a reflective mind....for with increase in rank it becomes always a matter less of self-sacrifice and more a matter of the preservation of others, and the good of the whole."

The following item just popped up on the regimental net:

Premier announces deputy ministerial appointment
11 March 2014
 
Media Contact(s)


Jesse Robichaud, communications, Office of the Premier, 506-453-2144.

FREDERICTON (GNB) – L. Craig Dalton has been appointed deputy minister of Public Safety, effective April 7.

“Craig's education, training and experience with the Canadian Armed Forces will ensure the Department of Public Safety continues to play a leadership role in ensuring public order and community safety,” said Premier David Alward. “I am looking forward to working with him.”

Dalton holds a master of science from Central Michigan University, master of arts from the United States Army School of Advanced Military Studies and a master of arts from Deakin University in Wollongong, Australia. Throughout his military career he has held several prominent positions including base commander of 5th Canadian Division Support Base Gagetown. Dalton has also served as the commander of a provincial reconstruction team while serving in Afghanistan as well as the director of a civil reconstruction and development team while serving in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Alward thanked outgoing deputy minister, Dale Wilson, for his years of service.

“I thank Dale for his dedication and service to his fellow New Brunswickers,” Alward said. “I am confident that the work he has done and the team he has assembled will continue to make our province a better place.”

Except that the RCA has both a D Arty and Regt Col.  It is my understanding that the RCA Regt Col deal with he heart and mind issues, Regt traditions, regimental senate, HCol's etc and D Arty is the adviser to the CA on technical arty and RCA personnel matters.

From:  http://www.artillery.net/beta/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/RCA-SOs-Vol-I-sm.pdf


Quote
THE DIRECTOR OF ARTILLERY
 
1. Throughout the history of The Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery, there has normally been a
senior serving artillery officer appointed and made responsible to provide direction to The Regiment. The
duties have varied, as have the titles, whether Inspector of Artillery, Officer Administering the Royal
Canadian Artillery or the present-day Director of Artillery.
 
2. Branch Advisor - The Director of Artillery is the focal point for Artillery Branch identity, and
provides essential input into the maintenance of the “good health” of all Artillery MOSIDs (Military
Occupational Structure Identification). The Director identifies problems, prepares position papers, and
can report directly to the Chief of the Land Staff on matters related to professional standards, career
patterns, trade specifications and structures, force development, force employment, training and doctrine.
 
3. The Director of Artillery, while having overall responsibility for the Artillery Branch, is primarily
focused on the operational aspects of The RCA Family Strategy. To assist the Director, the Regimental
Colonel will manage the non-operational aspects of the Family Strategy.

and

Quote
REGIMENTAL COLONEL
 
1. The Regimental Colonel’s primary responsibility is to provide leadership for Lines of Operation 3
to 5 of The RCA Family Strategy while recognizing that the Director of Artillery remains primus inter
pares, and is the primary interlocutor with the Land Staff. In exercising his functions, the Regimental
Colonel is responsible to Artillery Senate, is responsive to the Colonel Commandant, and coordinates his
efforts with those of the Director and the Royal Canadian Artillery Association. Given the nature of Lines
of Operations 3 to 5 issues, the Regimental Colonel should also be mindful of the support stakeholders
such as Honoraries, retired members and others can bring to bear in advancing these issues.

And the Infantry will have a D Inf and HCol and the Armoured Corp will have a D Armd and HCol, etc, etc.

I think muskrat89 pretty much puts the responsibilities into perspective.

Wow, that was a very short lived stint or so I think.

Managed to catch up on CANFORGENS and if it is the same person, he's now promoted to Col and will be the new Deputy Commander CF Recruiting Group.
