Geoffrey Ritchie, Executive Director of the PCMA states: "I was pleased to see such an impressive roster of industry leaders from across Canada stepping up to lead the PCMA, and offering their skill and effort to help take us in new directions. Our new Chairman Doug Bedard, a Senior Vice President and Director at MNP Corporate Finance Inc. (an exempt market dealer) and has been a great asset to our association for a number of years. Doug will help drive our industry dialogue in new directions and provide strategic leadership to the PCMA on the issues facing our industry.”

The PCMA is a key national voice in our capital markets and it leads our industry on the complex private capital / exempt market issues across Canada. Our mandate is to advocate for change where it’s needed, provide educational infrastructure for our industry, and to build networks and tools that help our members succeed in their businesses. In the past ten years, the PCMA has made tremendous strides growing its membership and expanding its scope and capabilities. As the new Chair, and with the support of our incredibly talented board & executive team, we will build on that strong legacy. Our goal is to continue to focus on supporting our membership across the country, increasing our influence on regulatory policy supporting the wide range of businesses across the private capital markets. Over the past few years, our work on regulatory and compliance issues has built a strong foundation for our industry - now, it's time to focus on the business of the private capital markets.”
