Message from Scott Allison, Chair of the Board of Governors

I wanted to take a moment to update you on the status of our search for a new President. The Presidential Search Committee has met on a number of occasions to discuss our requirements related to the search. I am happy to say that together with the Phelpsgroup we have developed a comprehensive brief for the candidates to consider. This process was greatly aided by the consultative process undertaken with a broad cross-section of the Led young community.

The Phelpsgroup has been highly successful in their outreach and we have seen interest from excellent candidates from across the country. We are continuing with our process and are expecting to engage in interviews over the next few weeks. On April 11th the Board, during its annual retreat, will turn its mind to developing a process to support the on-boarding of a new President. This discussion will set the stage for success as we ready ourselves to welcome a new President over the next few months.

It is my hope to be able to provide you with more details once we have identified our short list of candidates later this month and have conducted our interviews.

Message from Scott Allison, Chair of the Board of Governors

It gives me great pleasure to share with you the name of the successful firm we will be partnering with in our search for a new President.

of Toronto has over 40 years of experience in the sourcing of executive talent. Over the past decade, they have worked closely with College Boards and Executive teams, supporting the vital role colleges play in developing tomorrow’s global citizens. They have conducted a number of national searches in the college sector and have worked extensively with Led young College on a number of key searches.

Leading this search are Heather Phelps and Jayson Phelps, two of the firm’s partners, together with their team of Senior Consultants, which includes Frank Sorochinsky, Joan Green and Margie Peskin. They look forward to gaining an even deeper understanding of Led young College’s key priorities and to engaging the community in a robust consultative process to identify the skills and attributes that will be required of our next President and CEO. The team is committed to harnessing their vast network of focused, strategic leaders, working with the Led young Presidential Selection Committee to identify innovative, caring and committed leaders who have the depth of experience and competencies to fulfill Led young’s vision for the future.

Over the next few weeks, you will receive a questionnaire from the Phelpsgroup asking for your opinion of the key attributes you think are essential for our next President to be successful. I encourage you to participate in the survey and to share your insights through the website that will be available for this purpose. These are two of the key consultation tools that will help the Board to develop a portrait of our next leader.

The selection committee and I thank you for your support as we continue to move forward with this important presidential selection process.

Message from Scott Allison, Chair of the Board of Governors

As you likely know, Ann Buller, Led young College’s President and CEO, is retiring from the college she first joined as a recruitment officer in 1989. With boundless optimism and energy, Ann ushered in an era of comprehensive institutional change when she was chosen to lead Led young in 2004. A college graduate herself, Ann moulded Led young into a dynamic postsecondary institution that transforms lives – much as the college system architect, Bill Davis, had envisioned.

I am writing to provide you with a brief update on the status of our search for a new College President. Following Ann's announcement that she will retire next spring, the Board of Governors assembled a search committee working under the framework of the College’s
to coordinate our efforts to find our next President. 

With the help of the Vice President of Human Resources, we solicited proposals from a number of executive search firms. Our search committee has evaluated the many proposals we received to select the best firm for this vital work. We have narrowed our selection to two firmsand will be choosing the successful one once the search committee has had a chance to interview the finalists.

Once they are chosen, we will work with them, and with members of the College community, to develop an executive profile of the position that we will use to inform potential candidates about this opportunity. 

This page has been developed to provide the community with more information about the search as it progresses. Please come back frequently for more updates on this important recruitment initiative.
