GORDON BROWN APPOINTED ACADEMIC DEAN OF JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE

Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, May 23, 2017 –The Board of Governors of John Abbott College is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Gordon Brown as the new Academic Dean, effective August 1, 2017.

Mr Brown comes to John Abbott from Champlain College – St. Lawrence in Quebec City. Currently Dean of Faculty and Academic Affairs, he spent 20 years teaching Business Administration and Political Science. Over the years, he has served as department and program coordinator, member of the Champlain Board of Governors and member of the campus and college Academic Councils. Earlier in his career, he worked as a Chartered Accountant with the Office of the Auditor General of New Brunswick. Mr. Brown has Bachelor degrees in Engineering and in Political Science from the University of New Brunswick and in Music from Université Laval. He also holds two graduate degrees: a Master of Arts in Political Science from Université Laval and a Master of Business Administration from Queen’s.

“Following the unanimous recommendation from the selection committee and Academic Council, the Board of Governors is thrilled with Mr Brown’s appointment,” says Guylaine Audet, Chair of the Board of Governors. “Gordon’s vast knowledge of Québec’s education system, especially at the CEGEP level, makes him the obvious choice for the job.”

Mr Brown’s appointment follows the retirement of Erich Schmedt, who is stepping down after serving as Academic Dean for eight years. “Many great projects were completed during Erich’s tenure. We thank him for his dedication and wish him well in all his future projects,” added Guylaine Audet.
