Mr. Gervais began as an instructor within the Business Administration program and later became the Coordinator of the Business department. After leaving the College for two years to teach oversees in the Middle East, Guy returned to the College and worked in various roles including instructor, coordinator, and registrar. In 2010, he assumed the role of Dean of the Faculty of Business, University Studies and Social Work, and in August, 2015, he moved into an executive leadership position as the Associate Vice President Academic (VPA) and subsequently, Vice President Academic.

In his role as Vice President Academic, Guy is responsible for strategic leadership within a suite of academic programs including Business, Native Cultural Arts, Environmental Studies, Food Sciences, Health & Wellness, University Transfer, Human Services, Trades & Technology and Academic Upgrading.
