Bruce Wiebe Joins MCI as Contracts Manager

Bruce Wiebe, a senior contracts professional, has joined MCI as contracts manager. Wiebe will be responsible for all of MCI’s public sector procurement preparation and submissions as well as contract management.  He will be based out of the MCI manufacturing plant in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and reports to Tom Wagner, vice president of public sector sales.

Reporting to Wiebe are MCI’s three contract administrators, Dale Majury, Mike Harpin and Brad Driedger, who comprise the sales and operations team in Winnipeg. This team also plans and updates forecasts for production and inventory planning, working closely with MCI sales representatives and public sector customers on lead time and product specifications. 

Wiebe, who has a 17-year career with IBM, Winnipeg, was most recently a negotiating consultant, leading negotiations for new deal opportunities and change orders for existing contracts in a variety of fields including public sector. He also brings sales experience from his previous IBM roles as software account manager and leasing sales specialist, along with technical experience through his role as a technical solution manager. Prior to IBM, Wiebe held a number of positions with Manitoba Hydro and began his career at North American Life Assurance as an APL programmer upon graduating from the University of Alberta.

“Bruce brings a solid career in contract policy and has a strong financial and analytical background,” said Wagner.  “His contract expertise, along with his team-building and communication skills, will be of benefit to the cross-functional teams involved in MCI contracts and proposals. We welcome him to the team.”

Wiebe earned a B.Sc. in Math from the University of Alberta and an MBA in Finance from the University of Manitoba. He also holds a C.M.A. from the Society of Management Accountants.
