Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador CEO Announces Retirement

St. John’s, N.L. – Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador (MNL) CEO Craig Pollett has announced to the Board of Directors and membership his intention to leave the organization at the end of 2022.

“The board of directors would like to thank Craig for the excellent work he has done to bring improvements to the municipal sector through his tireless advocacy-related work,” says MNL President Amy Coady. “We are incredibly proud of Craig’s accomplishments, including his decades-long work to realize a long-standing MNL goal of working with the provincial government to introduce a framework for regional local government.”

Pollett has served as CEO for more than 20 years, during which time he has overseen several significant projects and guided the organization through numerous changes. He has, over his two decades with MNL, continuously worked to provide resources, tools and planning capacity for municipalities to improve their economic development potential while promoting good governance.

Most recently, Pollett, under the direction of the board of directors, led staff through the development of a new strategic plan to guide the organization and its members through the next few years.

The Board of Directors has begun the process of recruiting a new CEO to the organization, with the expectation that a new CEO will be named before Pollett steps down in December of this year.

“MNL has never been in a better place in terms of finances, advocacy, programs, and potential,” says Pollett. “The new CEO will inherit a powerful machine for change. My faith in the strategic path the Board of Directors has set is complete. My faith in our incredible staff is complete.”
