The Winnipeg Humane Society has named Jessica Miller as the organization’s new chief executive officer.
Miller, a former employee at the WHS, has also served on the society’s board of directors since 2018.
“I cannot express the gratitude I feel to join an organization that lives the mission and vision of compassion,” Miller said in a statement.
“The WHS has a talented team, hundreds of devoted volunteers, a dedicated board of directors, and many external partners — together we will speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, we will protect all animals, and promote their welfare and dignity. I am excited for our future.”
Miller previously served as the vice-president, marketing and communications for the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation for the last six years. She began her career at Global Television, working in media relations as a publicist. She later joined the Winnipeg Humane Society as an event, marketing and sponsorship specialist.
