The Southeast College’s board of directors have begun a search for a new CEO and president, after announcing that Dion McGrath has left the institution after six years of service to the college.
“We wish him the best in his future endeavours,” said board chair Janice Giroux, noting that Bonnie Dempsey was appointed as the interim president and CEO as of April 3.
Giroux would not provide any details around McGrath’s departure, and said, “What we’re focusing on is hiring a new CEO and president.”
The board would like to fill this position right away, said Giroux, who noted the college is led by a team that works well together, and is fully supported by the community.
“I think what’s really important is that it takes a team to provide a quality program, and we have a great team in place at Southeast College,” said Giroux.
“The community has been really supportive with scholarships for our students,” she added.
