White Lake Limited Partnership is seeking applications for the newly created position of Chief Operating Officer (COO).

White Lake LP (WLLP) is wholly owned business of the Netmizaaggamig Nishnaabeg.

Due to our continued growth, and as part of our succession planning for our senior management team, we’re searching for  a Chief Operating Officer (COO) who has strong leadership skills and the ability to approach business with a creative point  of view.

The chief operating officer (COO) is second in command within the WLLP organization, and reports to the chief executive  officer (CEO). While a CEO is concerned with long-term business goals, the COO is focused more on implementing  company strategies into daily operations to meet objectives.

The ideal candidate  has extensive experience in a senior management role, optimally within an Indigenous enterprise, having worked their way  up to an executive role, and with a passion for growing into the CEO role. We believe this trajectory helps a person develop  a unique mix of business and management expertise, plus proficiency with the practices, policies, and procedures of our business. It’s important for the CEO and COO to be efficient collaborators and work in tandem to steward the
company with the best leadership.
