According to a release by both colleges, Hoddenbagh has a wide range of experience in numerous fields connected to post-secondary education, including strategic planning, applied research, indigenous strategy and business development.

"We're really excited to have him and have somebody that is of a rock star caliber the way he is,” said Corinna Stevenson, the co-chair of the colleges’ joint board of directors.

Hoddenbagh will be part of a two-year trial that will see him lead two colleges that operate separately but have the same president and board of directors.

“He's excited to lead that challenge and we'll see potentially what can happen in the sector as well,” Stevenson said. “I just really appreciate that about him: he’s really agile and he’s at a place in his career where he can choose things that really excite him, even if there are some challenges.”

Hoddenbagh replaces Tom Weegar, who resigned as president of Cumberland College in March 2018 and Dwayne Reeve, who resigned as president of Parkland College in July 2018.
