Charlottetown, PE – Holland College president Dr. Brian McMillan has been named to Atlantic Business Magazine’s Top 50 CEO list for the fifth consecutive year, earning him a place in the Top 50 CEO Hall of Fame.

Dr. McMillan has been leading the college through a dynamic renewal process for the last eight years. Under his guidance, the creation of new campuses, the expansion and renovations of others, as well as the development of new programs and services has put Holland College at the forefront of post-secondary training in the region.

Dr. McMillan said that he would not have received this honour without the support of the board of governors, senior leadership, and all college staff.

“I consider this award to be an endorsement of the work that we accomplish as a team at Holland College,” he said. “In addition to that, our strong connections with industry and with communities across the province have enabled us to take a leadership role in enhancing the economic and social development of Prince Edward Island.”

Since 1999, Atlantic Business Magazine has dedicated one of its six issues per year to profiling Atlantic Canada’s most accomplished business leaders. Nominations are submitted by readers, and nominees are judged according to their corporate, community and industry involvement; their company’s growth in recent years; and their responses to various managerial challenges.

Profiles and pictures of all Top 50 award winners are in the May/June issue of Atlantic Business Magazine and on the magazine’s website.
