Guescini will serve a four-year appointment — two years as president-elect and two years as president.
He brings great expertise to his new role with EWO. Since 2018, he’s been leading the charge at George Brown to build and expand opportunities for students to gain real-world and hands-on learning experiences.

EWO is committed to providing a consolidated voice for Ontario’s Experiential and Work-Integrated Learning sector as we promote and enable the successful integration of students and industry.”
