In those positions, he demonstrated executive leadership by providing a vision for excellence and strategic initiatives that strengthened both communities.
The search committee was impressed with Mr. Domingo’s accomplishments and his understanding of, and commitment to, Catholic education. All of the reference checks that were conducted by the committee members reinforced and amplified the positive qualities that were observed in the interview process. Mr. Domingo is personable, experienced, decisive, strategic and highly motivated to join the Bishop Alemany community. Please join the school in welcoming him into our Warrior family!
