Senate confirms Whitney for MTI post

Brian Whitney is set to become the Maine Technology Institute’s new executive director after his nomination was unanimously confirmed by the state Senate on Tuesday.

The Associated Press reported that the Senate unanimously voted to support Whitney, who had been nominated by Gov. Paul LePage to lead MTI. The confirmation comes a day after a legislative panel unanimously endorsed him.

Whitney has been MTI’s interim leader since former president Robert Martin was abruptly fired by LePage in August 2014. Whitney has served as the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development’s director of business development and innovation since 2012.
