The board of the Canadian Urban Institute (CUI) has unanimously appointed Fred Eisenberger as the new President and CEO of the Institute. According to Terry Cooke, chair of the CUI board, "This appointment continues the CUI tradition of leadership by distinguished urban leaders including immediate past Presidents Glen Murray and David Crombie."
The former Hamilton mayor will officially start his new role on February 7, 2011.
In a press release issued today, former CUI President Glen Murray, now the Ontario Minister of Research and Innovation, is quoted saying, "Fred Eisenberger's leadership has demonstrated a clear understanding of the interdependence of economy, culture and civility to the sustainability and prosperity of a city."
Michael Fenn, the facilitator who recommended the East Mountain Pan Am Stadium location earlier this year, has served as the interim CEO of the Institute since Mr. Murry was elected to the Ontario Legislature in a February, 2010 by-election.
