RDC is pleased to announce that Darcy Mykytyshyn has been named as the new Dean of the Donald School of Business effective October 1, 2012.
Mykytyshyn brings a unique blend of leadership and management experience into his new role as Dean. With 20 years of experience working as an entrepreneur, with entrepreneurs and in corporate environments, Mykytyshyn has also consistently demonstrated commitment to central Alberta through numerous volunteer leadership roles.
Mykytyshyn has served as President and CEO of Strategy in Action, a consulting firm he founded that focuses on assisting organizations with the development and execution of strategic planning processes, as well as strong governance practices. He has been focused over the last few months supporting Central Alberta Access Prosperity, an RDC partner whose mandate is to bring business investment to Central Alberta and support local businesses looking to expand beyond our region.
Prior to these roles, he was Vice President of Corporate Affairs before being named Vice President of Governance and Strategy at Community Credit Union (now Servus Credit Union). RDC will benefit from Mykytyshyn’s valuable experience in team management and long-term corporate strategy.
“Darcy has demonstrated success creating new business opportunities, relationship building, fundraising and at being able to identify and expand areas for long-term growth in his experience at the executive level,” says Brad Donaldson, Vice President Academic at RDC. “We’re excited to see how Darcy will help to further the mandate of the Donald School of Business, which includes strengthening relationships with businesses in central Alberta to enable them to successfully compete in their markets while ensuring we continue to offer high quality leading-edge programs for our students.”
As Dean, Mykytyshyn will work closely with business professionals in the community to continue to develop the College’s contribution to the economic, cultural and social fabric of central Alberta. A key part of the role will be to explore new four-year degree programs through the Donald School of Business, like the new Bachelor of Business Administration degree launched this fall, to ensure students can stay in central Alberta for the duration of their post-secondary studies.
“I strongly believe that everyone can achieve their goals through formal education and practical experience and so I’m thrilled to join RDC to help offer central Albertans a valuable education that will prepare our students for business success,” says Mykytyshyn. “I look forward to strengthening relationships and helping to create new opportunities for our students and our community that benefit learners and business professionals for a more prosperous region.”
