Janine-North-high-resolution-150x150Prince George, B.C.-It has been nearly four months since Janine North announced her plans to retire from her post as CEO of the Northern Development  Initiative Trust, and  her replacement may  be chosen within  the coming weeks.

The search for a  new CEO was officially launched  in late April,  and  is now  down to a short list of candidates.  “I expect  the Board will be interviewing  candidates over the summer” says North.

She has agreed to stay on  in the  post until her successor has been chosen  and  she can assist  the  new CEO  in getting settled  so  there is, as she says “a smooth transition”.

North is  the only  CEO the NDIT has  had,   as she was  placed at the helm of the  Trust when it was first established in 2005.  The mandate of the NDIT  is to strengthen the economy and has used more than $142 million in funding for more than 2,000 projects throughout central and northern B.C.
