Fort Edmonton Park is a living history museum standing on the threshold of a bold new chapter. Begun 50 years ago as a reconstruction of the old Fort Edmonton, the Park has grown to include four distinct eras, depicting the evolution of Edmonton’s early history. Now, Fort Edmonton is embarking on a $165 million expansion and renovation that will set the stage for its evolution from a regional, seasonal attraction to a year-round, branded venue that will become nationally recognized as an iconic part of Alberta’s living history.
Don Cummings, Board Chair of Fort Edmonton Management Company, sought out HumanEdge’s assistance with an Edmonton executive search to find a President & CEO capable of successfully leading the organizational transformation, as well as the dramatic cultural shift that would be required to fully capitalize on the major investment in the Park.
What we really appreciated about HumanEdge was their complete ability to understand the complexity of a private/public partnership that was the foundation of the Company’s governance and executive structure. They fully anticipated our needs and contributed advice and insight that lead to the recruitment of a CEO that could meet the unique challenges and opportunities involved in the growth of the Park. We would unreservedly recommend them for their ability to support the recruitment process required in the strategic direction of a complex organization.”
