New GM announced for the Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium


The Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium has a new General Manager.

After an extensive search, the Board of Governors of the Western Manitoba Centennial
Auditorium is happy to announce the hiring of Kaitlyn Mitchell as their new General Manager.

“We are very excited to move forward with Kaitlyn at the helm of the WMCA. As Brandon’s premiere entertainment venue, it was important for our Board to find the right fit for the organization. With the hiring of Kaitlyn Mitchell to assume this role, I feel we did just that” said Shaun Cameron, Chairperson of the Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium Board of Governors.

Mitchell joins the organization at a pivotal time in its existence as the partners in the facility continue to move through sustainability work that will see the venue through the decades to come. Although not unfamiliar to the organization serving as a contracted bookkeeper and former events staff member for a number of years, Mitchell is eager to get going.

“I am thrilled to accept this position. The historical grandeur, lasting legacy and performance potential of the WMCA are cornerstones of the Westman arts and culture community. I know the long-standing relationships will flourish for years to come alongside new and exciting possibilities. No stranger to the administration here, or the stage for that matter, I look forward to working with the community once again from a new perspective,” said Mitchell.

Mitchell is taking over the reigns from General Manager Tom Crook who announced his retirement in 2022.

“I’ve worked with Kaitlyn in a number of capacities over the years. I look forward to watching her career progress and the WMCA continue to grow their reach and impact in the community” said Crook.

Mitchell officially assumes the role this month, with Crook’s retirement expected following the transition.
