Kirchner Group expands in Canada with two senior hires

Merchant banking firm Kirchner Group is growing in Toronto, adding a long-time mergers professional and a venture capital banker.

Kirchner has three main parts to its business. The firm advises on transactions, provides management help to companies, and does asset management.

The firm hired Boris Novansky as a managing director of mergers and acquisitions. Mr. Novansky was a most recently a diversified-industries specialist at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, and before that was head of M&A at Cormark Securities, one of the country’s biggest independent securities firms.
