CNC has named a new president.
The selection committee and college board chose Henry Reiser, dean of Trades and Technology at Kwantlen Polytechnic University to be their new operations boss. According to CNC spokesman Randall Heidt, Reiser "who holds a Master of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering from UBC, will bring more than 25 years of applied research experience to CNC when he takes the helm June 1."
“The future at CNC is very bright and I’m excited and eager to get started,” said Reiser, “With all of the resource-based projects planned in northern B.C. in the near future, CNC is well positioned to provide skills and training across many disciplines, which will lead to good paying and long-term jobs for our graduates.”
“We were delighted to have found such a knowledgeable and experienced president in Henry,” said Martin Pudlas, search committee chair and CNC board member.
“Henry’s experience at several post-secondary institutions will benefit CNC going forward.”
Heidt said Reiser has international work experience in Pakistan and China and he has been recognized as an expert "in integrating research into the curriculum both nationally and internationally."
He has also participated in numerous conferences in renewable/alternate energy and is a strong proponent of the hydrogen economy, which he has been involved with since 1984.
