TIMMINS, ON: Northern College has officially announced the newest addition to their senior management team. On June 9, 2014, Mr. Mike Baker will assume the role of Vice-President, Finance, Administration and Aboriginal Services.

Baker, who hails from New Liskeard, brings a blend of operations management, accounting, and human resources experience. He most recently served as Chief Executive Officer of the Englehart and District Hospital and Executive Director of the Englehart Family Health Team. He comes to Northern with a well-rounded understanding of the institution and post-secondary education cultivated by his two years as a member of the college’s Board of Governors.

“Mr. Baker comes to us with a wealth of experience and all the qualities we’d expect to see in college leadership,” says Fred Gibbons, President of Northern College. “I am extremely pleased to welcome Mike to his new role and am confident that we’ve found the right individual to lead this team down the path of continued success.”

Baker will be guiding the team previously led by retiring Vice-President, Finance, Administration and Aboriginal Services, Loran Charbonneau who has been with the college since the early 1990’s. Charbonneau announced her June retirement back in January of this year.
