Two more senior bankers are joining Difference Capital, the year-old merchant banking and advisory firm being built by GMP Capital co-founder Michael Wekerle and a group of partners.
Jamie Brown, who used to run Canaccord Genuity’s U.S. investment banking business, has been named a partner. He will start in the Toronto office but the plan is to move him to his hometown of Vancouver to open Difference’s west coast office. The other name set to go on the roster is Tom Astle, a long time technology analyst who has run the research departments of two different firms. His job will be two-fold, to help vet investments, and then to tell their stories once Difference puts money into them.
