June 16, 2011 — Ann Buller, President and CEO of Centennial College, has been elected Chair of the Board of ACCC.
“As president of a large and culturally diverse college, Ann has demonstrated transformative leadership capabilities,” said James Knight, President and CEO of ACCC.
“I look forward to continuing the strategic leadership of outgoing Chair Nicole Rouillier, Director General of Cégep Marie-Victorin, as the Canada grapples with a dramatic demographic deficit and an advanced skills shortage,” says Ms Buller.
Ms Buller has been President and CEO of Centennial College since 2004. Under her direction, Centennial launched its ‘Signature Learning Experience’ that prepares students to be global citizens at the same time as teaching them advanced skills for employment. Ms Buller previously served as Vice President Academic and Chief Learning Officer of the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) and as Centennial College as Director of Student Services and Vice-president of Student Advocacy and Services before becoming president.
Earlier this year Ms Buller was named one of the 100 most powerful women in Canada by the Women’s Executive Network.
