From Murray Taylor, Chairman of the Board of Directors PDF Print E-mail



On behalf of the board, I would like to let you know that Jim Carr has submitted his resignation to pursue other opportunities, effective Friday, January 31st. 

Jim has been our CEO since the council was formed in January 1998. Throughout this time, the work of the Business Council of Manitoba has been very effective in encouraging many diverse leaders to take our collective future more seriously and seek to improve all measures of success for our Province. 

We are truly grateful to Jim for his leadership through this formative period of the Business Council.   Jim was able to bring many parties together from various corners of government, business and community interests to forge the development of ideas and action plans.  Although patient in his approach, Jim always helped set a resolute direction to be followed on each issue the Business Council established as its priority. 

Jim’s leadership has been instrumental in leading our activities in areas such as our increased focus on immigration over the last 15 years and our future attention to improving the education of our youth throughout the Province.   

We will truly miss his enthusiastic concern for the important work of the Business Council.   We wish Jim well in all his future endeavors. 

Although Jim will no longer be employed by the Business Council we will consult with him on numerous transitional issues and projects over the coming weeks through a leadership transition.

A search committee chaired by Doug Harvey (past chair of the board of directors) has been appointed.  They will be assisted by a local search firm to be chosen shortly in recruiting a new CEO for the Business Council.

Through this transition, the Board of Directors and our Committee chairs will continue to direct the work of the Business Council and speak on its behalf.
