The Board of Governors has contracted Leaders International to oversee the upcoming national search for the next president and chief executive officer of MITT, a hybrid institution offering secondary, post-secondary, adult learning and English language education, as well as industry training.
Since becoming a stand-alone post-secondary institution in 2014, MITT has gone through a period of rapid growth, more than doubling in size. MITT now offers more than 30 programs in the areas of skilled trades, design and manufacturing technologies, applied business, information and communication technology, health care, and human services. MITT prides itself on offering affordable, timely, skills-based education for learners.
With the launch of a new strategic plan titled Start Here to Get There: A five-year plan for progressive change, innovation and inclusion in June 2022, MITT is positioned to maintain its momentum, significantly contributing to Manitoba’s economic, social and technological progress.
“It will be an exciting time to welcome a new president and CEO to MITT,” said Ken Webb, Chair, Board of Governors. “We look forward to working with Leaders International to find the right leader who understands the need for accessible, industry-driven, student-focused education designed for learners of all backgrounds at any stage of their career.”
The Board has determined that in the interim, MITT’s Executive Council members will lead the organization, each serving a term as interim president and CEO. This collective leadership model utilizes the combined expertise of all members of the Executive Council and enables MITT to continue to achieve its priorities.
Leaders International will conduct stakeholder engagement activities with the Board of Governors, key stakeholders and staff throughout this process.
Outgoing President and CEO Ray Karasevich has recently been announced as the new President and CEO at Assiniboine Park Conservancy. The Board of Governors members are proud of Karasevich and wish him well in his new opportunity.
