Olds College announces new appointments

Olds College announces fills two positions to focus on innovation and fundraising

Olds College has announced a pair of key appointments to its leadership team.

Stuart Cullum will be the college’s new Chief Innovation Officer. He will drive innovation by aligning the college’s programs and research with industry and government priorities, says the college in a news release announcing his appointment.

Cullum will also work on asset development, advocate for the college and develop a “comprehensive analytics and big data plan.”

“With the changes in the province and the nation around climate leadership and the realignment of Alberta’s innovation agenda, the college needs to take bold action in the area of innovation so it can position itself for the opportunities that lay ahead of us,” says Olds College president Tom Thompson.

Also recently appointed is Tanya McDonald, who will become Vice-president of Advancement.

McDonald will be responsible for fund development, including the college’s multi-year fundraising campaign. Other responsibilities extend to corporate communications and marketing and athletics.
