Alberta's United Conservative Party has hired the former executive director of the federal Conservative Party, who left his previous job amid the controversy involving leader Andrew Scheer's use of party funds for his children's private school tuition.

The UCP announced the hiring of Dustin van Vugt as the UCP's new executive director in an email to party members Friday afternoon.

"Dustin, born and raised in Calgary, comes with strong experience serving as the executive director of the Conservative Party of Canada," UCP president Ryan Becker said in the email.
