At the regularly scheduled Board of Directors meeting on August 28, 2018, the Cloverland board voted to engaged Dr. Peter Mitchell to manage the search for our next president and CEO. Dr. Mitchell, owner of Proactive Transition Management LLC based in Fairfield, Connecticut, most recently served as interim president and led the search for the permanent president of Lake Superior State University. Well respected and knowledgeable of our community, Dr. Mitchell brings a thoughtful, disciplined approach to executive recruitment. He will begin gathering input from our board and the senior management team the week of September 24th. While the search can take three to six months, the goal is to have the new president and CEO named by early 2019. A recent story in the Soo Evening News on our board’s first open meeting reported on the board’s decision to hire a search firm to assure members it carries out the appropriate due diligence in this very important effort.
