It is bittersweet that I am announcing the resignation of Miguel Lameiro as Associate Dean, Program Delivery in Education and Training Solutions. Miguel has expressed his pride in having worked with the many real estate professionals and facilitators who have been critical to the success of the program's facilitated sessions. Miguel also wants to acknowledge everyone's notable contributions. He will also remember fondly everyone’s efforts in shaping the future of real estate education in Ontario via novel scheduling algorithms, innovative delivery methods, robust program governance, data-driven decision-making, new program development, and more. Miguel is now poised to continue his doctoral studies and contribute to international education projects under the auspices of the European Commission's Erasmus programme.
I want to personally, thank Miguel for his many contributions to Humber’s Real Estate Education Programs as well as wish him all the best as he ventures into new opportunities in Europe. Everyone at Education & Training Solutions (ETS) will miss you. We invite you to send well wishes to Miguel. His last day will be Friday, September 30, 2022.
I am also pleased to announce Miguel’s replacement, effective Monday, September 19, James Boesch joined Education & Training Solutions as our new Associate Dean, Program Delivery.
After beginning his career in a variety of private and not-for-profit business development and accounting roles, James joined the Ontario college system in 2010 as an Academic Manager in Cambrian College’s Schools of Nursing, Health Sciences and Emergency Services. Since then, his career took him to Fleming College as Chair for their School of Business and Hospitality and to Conestoga College to serve in a similar capacity. While at Fleming, James also had the opportunity to lead their international recruitment and international student services operations as Executive Director, International. In this capacity, James helped to lead Fleming through a period of significant growth and change.
While serving as Chair of the Business at Conestoga, James spearheaded new programs and program streams including Business Analytics, Payroll, Automotive Supply, Chain Management and Advanced Accounting Techniques. He also played a key role in the development and approval of Conestoga’s Financial Services degree.
As a Chartered Professional Accountant and one who also holds a Masters in Workforce and Adult Learning from the University of Calgary, James will bring a combination of adult learning theory and business acumen to his role with us.
Please join me in welcoming James to his new role and Humber College.
Dean, Education & Training Solutions
