Aaron Regent has re-emerged in a prominent role on Bay Street after being elected to Bank of Nova Scotia's board of directors Tuesday.

The post is Mr. Regent's first high-profile gig since he was ousted as chief executive officer of Barrick Gold Corp. last June amidst worries about the company's expensive acquisition of Equinox Minerals Ltd. and its sagging share price.

Brian Porter, the man in line to become Scotia's CEO once Rick Waugh retires, was also elected to the board Tuesday.
