CEED will be kicking off 2017 with an exciting change of faces as Craig MacMullin makes his debut as President and CEO. Along with an infectious attitude, Craig brings many years of widespread experience and looks forward to making the most out of the his time with CEED.
As a native Cape Bretoner, Craig is always making an effort in getting to know the people around him. This outgoing attitude was reflected as he sought out to form a relationship with each and every employee. In the short span of time he has been here, Craig has displayed his strong leadership skills remarkably well.
Leading his first staff meeting, Craig encouraged everyone to participate in finding and suggesting solutions for various challenges that the organization faces. By welcoming this collaboration, employees feel their opinion is valued and that each person plays a vital role in the organization’s overall success. Craig is effectively working toward a good-humored work environment structured upon a foundation of teamwork.
Craig believes in having his team share their perspectives on issues. He believes this is the best way for him to see a situation from every angle thereby allowing him to make the best decision and thus the right strategic move.
A system based on accountability is another aspect Craig wishes to bring to the table and put forward into CEED’s work environment. By helping facilitate an individual’s ability to hold himself accountable, Craig encourages said individual to learn from their mistakes. Craig believes that failure isn’t viewed as the end, but rather an opportunity to learn from your mistake to go forward. Viewing failure as a learning mechanism to re-evaluate what and how you are doing something and devise a new strategy to reach your goals is what the entrepreneurial spirit is all about.
CEED is enthusiastic to welcome Craig MacMullin as our new President and CEO. We are eager to be a part of his vision for CEED and excited to continue encouraging members of our community to have the courage to chase after their entrepreneurial aspirations!
