Message From Ana Fernandes

As we seek a new President and Chief Executive Officer to help us write the next chapter in our history as one of Canada’s leaders in polytechnic education, we will be informed by our values and strong sense of community.

We will be establishing a Presidential Search Advisory Committee, representing key constituencies of the College community.

The College has engaged the services of search firm KBRS (Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette) to support the Presidential Search Advisory Committee in identifying candidates. Founded in 1975, KBRS is a strategic talent advisor to universities and colleges across Canada and is among Canada’s largest academic executive search firms.

We will provide updates on the process as the search progresses, and new information will be added to this page in the weeks to come, including an in-depth position description and information on the Presidential Search Advisory Committee.

With so much underway across our physical and digital campuses, it is an exciting time for Humber to focus on our future and undertake this search.
