MITT launches search for new President and CEO

Originally posted: January 11, 2023

Manitoba Institute and Trades and Technology (MITT) has officially launched the national search for its new President and CEO.

The search follows the departure of President and CEO Ray Karasevich this past December. MITT has engaged Leaders International to lead the search to fill this vital position.

MITT has grown substantially since launching in 2014 with its current mandate as a hybrid post-secondary institution, building on its 30-year legacy as Winnipeg Technical College and South Winnipeg Technical College. MITT now offers more than 30 programs in design and manufacturing technologies, applied business, information and communication technology, health care, skilled trades, and human services.

“Our significant growth over the last eight years is largely due to the support and collaboration from industry and the incredible team we have at MITT,” said Ken Webb, Chair, MITT Board of Governors. “The individual who joins the institution as our next President and CEO will play a crucial role in shaping MITT’s continued response to the needs of industry, the student experience, our role within Manitoba’s post-secondary education system and our impact in the province.”

With an established Strategic Plan guiding the institute’s direction through 2027, the new President and CEO will work with the Board of Governors, Executive Council, staff and partners to advance MITT’s mission. Maintaining and growing partnerships, inspiring innovation and creativity, and fostering dedication, collaboration and accountability will be critical facets in the success of this individual.

While the search takes place, MITT’s Executive Council 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.
