About 1

I’m honoured to serve as the eighth President of Mohawk College. I joined Mohawk in August 2014 after 35 years in the private and public sectors, including the Bank of Montreal, Rogers Communications and the Ontario Government. Outside the college, I serve as chair of World Vision Canada. I hold a Master of Business Administration from Dalhousie University and I graduated from the Advanced Management Program from Harvard Business School. I’ve been married 34 years, have two grown sons and will be calling Burlington our new home this October.

Mohawk College annually educates and serves 22,000 full-time, part-time and apprenticeship students from three campuses in Hamilton, Ontario. More than 110,000 students have graduated from Mohawk since our college opened its doors in the late 1960s. Mohawk is recognized as a leader in health and technology education, skilled trades training and applied research. For four consecutive years, Mohawk has finished first for overall student satisfaction among all colleges in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Mohawk has also been named one of the region’s top 10 employers and one of Canada’s greenest employers.

  1. Hello there – I wanted to pass on an article I came across found at: https://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/content/welcome-to-canada-but-dont-expect-to-make-friends.

    During my time as a student at Brock University i was made aware of a program that paired Canadian students as ‘buddies’ to international students. The Canadian student would show them around the campus, surrounding community as well as help them navigate their classroom experience. Ultimately, this program helped international students become comfortable in a new land and environment. I know that Mohawk is looking to make Hamilton an attractive place for international students to live and work. I thought I would pass on a potential idea for helping that initiative!

    Thank you for taking the time to read.
