Calgary - Dave Collyer, Chair of the Board of Governors of Bow Valley College, today announced the appointment of Laura Jo Gunter as the new President and CEO of the College.

"Following an extensive search, we are very pleased to announce that Ms. Gunter will serve as the 5th President of the College, and only the second President since we gained independent board governance in 1997," said Collyer.

"Ms. Gunter has a demonstrated record of leadership in post-secondary education, and currently serves as Senior Vice President, Academic at George Brown College in Toronto," said Collyer. "She has all the requisite skills and experience to lead Bow Valley College in the years ahead and we are delighted to announce her appointment."

"I'm keenly looking forward to joining Bow Valley College, which is recognized as a leading comprehensive community College," said Gunter. "And I'm very proud to be assuming this position and building on a strong record of success."
