WCM Announces Appointment Of New President

TORONTO, April 9, 2013 /CNW/ - The Women in Capital Markets Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Jennifer Reynolds as President, effective April 22, 2013.

Ms. Reynolds brings a wealth of experience to the role after more than 15 years on Bay Street. Prior to her most recent position as Managing Director, Head of Diversified Industries, Investment Banking at Stonecap Securities Inc., she held senior roles within OMERS and BMO Capital Markets investment banking groups. Throughout her career she has actively leveraged her financial expertise and business skills to achieve exceptional results and advance in the capital markets industry.

"We are delighted to have Jennifer join us as President," said Kathryn Smith, Chair of WCM. "Jennifer's passion and vision for the future of woman in this industry makes her the ideal candidate to lead WCM to the next level of success, as we continue to provide significant benefits for both our members and stakeholders."

Ms. Reynolds received her MBA from McGill University, where she had earlier obtained a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Economics and Political Science. She is currently Chair of the Board of the Microskills Business Incubator. She is also a Director on the Board of Studio 180, and a member of Canadian Women in Private Equity.

"WCM's growth over the last five years has been exciting, bringing strong attention to our work in attracting and advancing women in the industry. I am thrilled with the board's selection for my successor and am very excited to be working with Jennifer over the transition period. I look forward to passing on the torch to her at our AGM on June 6," said outgoing CEO Martha Fell.

"I am excited to be taking on the WCM leadership role from Martha," Ms. Reynolds said. "I look forward to working with WCM's Board, sponsors and members to achieve significant growth in the number of women working in capital markets and rising to leadership roles in the industry."
