President And Chief Executive Officer

Job details:

Are you energized by the opportunity to lead true transformative change?      

Our client, Manitoba Hydro, one of the largest electricity and natural gas distribution utilities in Canada, is seeking its next President and Chief Executive Officer. Manitoba Hydro is a leader in the distribution of renewable energy and clean burning natural gas with nearly all electricity  generated using the province’s abundant water resources. 

A proven change leader with an extensive background in financial and operational excellence, the new President and Chief Executive Officer will create and guide the implementation of a visionary strategic plan and practical business plan aligned with the mission of Manitoba Hydro and the policy direction of its shareholder, the Government of Manitoba.   The CEO will establish and maintain a culture of empowerment, high performance and continuous improvement, working closely with the executive team in strengthening Manitoba Hydro’s position as an industry leader, embracing new business opportunities and effectively mobilizing employees to build a geographically- disbursed, customer-focused business.   

In addition to a demonstrated successful track record transforming multi-stakeholder and multi- business line organizations, providing effective oversight to large scale capital projects, managing a multi-union environment and operating in a highly regulated industry, the ideal candidate will effectively navigate through complex issues while often having to balance competing interests and priorities. The ideal candidate will bring passion, enthusiasm, creativity and authenticity and holds an advanced post-secondary degree and a minimum of 20 years experience at the C-suite level in a large P&L, dynamic and complex environment.  Ideally this experience will be in the hydroelectric generation, transmission, distribution and customer service business, or as a senior executive from the telecommunications or utilities industry. This role requires the ability to work effectively with a Board and its shareholder and foster productive and mutually respectful relationships with Indigenous peoples and communities as well as governments at all levels.

If you are a visionary leader, have excellent oral, written and presentation skills, demonstrate decisiveness and excellent judgment, have political, business and financial acumen and have earned a reputation as someone who drives results, you will want to explore this exciting opportunity.
