College president named to Top CEO list

For the third consecutive year, Holland College president Dr. Brian McMillan was named one of Atlantic Canada’s Top 50 CEOs by Atlantic Business Magazine during a gala celebration in Halifax recently.

Stan MacPherson, chair of the Holland College Board of Governors, praised Dr. McMillan for his leadership.

“Dr. McMillan’s dedication to Holland College and its students is commendable,” he said. “On behalf of the board of governors, I extend congratulations to him for once again being named to this most prestigious list.”

Dr. McMillan said that the award, and the fact that this is the third consecutive year that he has received it, is a testimony to the commitment and high quality of the students, faculty, and staff at Holland College.

“Although the award has been presented to me, I feel that it has been earned by everyone in our college community and our partners in government and industry,” he said. “For more than 40 years, Holland College has worked to improve opportunities for Islanders and their families. Our continued success is directly attributable to the way we all work together to ensure the best possible outcomes for our students.”

Nominations for Atlantic Business Magazine’s annual Top 50 CEOs are judged according to their corporate, community and industry involvement; their company’s growth in recent years; and their responses to various managerial challenges. All 50 award winners are profiled annually in the magazine’s May/June issue.
