Merchant bank Kirchner Group’s ties to Canada are getting deeper, as the firm named former senior Canaccord Genuity executive Mark Maybank as head of its new advisory board.
Kirchner is a U.S. firm that does advisory, operational and asset management work, and has lately been adding to its already broad presence in Canada. Mr. Maybank was president of Canaccord until his departure in late 2011. Since then, he has been spending his time investing, working as an advisor and travelling. At Kirchner, his job will be to lead a group that will “assist management in strengthening, building, and growing our platform as well as taking full advantage of the myriad growth opportunities we face today,” Kirchner founder Bud Kirchner said in a statement.
