Northern Lights College has named Dr. Bryn Kulmatycki as its new permanent president and CEO, after a relatively fast selection process.

Kulmatycki, currently the academic vice president at the College of New Caledonia in Prince George, will become NLC’s sixth president on April 1.

“It was clear that Bryn had the depth of character and leadership vision that will be an excellent fit for Northern Lights College,” Karen Simpson, the chair of NLC’s board of governors, said in a release. “I have no doubt that he will be an outstanding president for this college.”

Kulmatycki replaces Laurie Rancourt, who resigned last summer to take a position at Humber College in Toronto to be closer to her family. Dr. Nicholas Rubidge held the position on an interim basis while a search committee considered Rancourt’s replacement.

The new president earned his degrees in Alberta, and spent time in executive positions in Edmonton, Grande Prairie and Whitecourt before moving on to Prince George.

“I am truly excited to return to the North and be a part of the excitement and energy that is happening in northeastern British Columbia,” Kulmatycki said in the news release.

This is an ongoing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
