Canaccord Genuity Group Inc. has hired a veteran bulge bracket banker.
Brad Cameron, who has worked in finance since the mid-1980s, has joined the Vancouver-based dealer as a senior adviser in the Canadian investment banking unit.
"Brad will work closely with our investment banking and advisory teams to originate new business and provide execution support across the platform," Pat Burke, president, capital markets, Canada wrote in a memo to staff.
From 2001 to 2009, Mr. Cameron worked as a senior banker with RBC Dominion Securities Inc. Then he joined Merrill Lynch as head of Canadian mergers and acquisitions (M&A). He held a similar role at Credit Suisse, which he joined in 2012. He left the global dealer last year.
Among the transactions Mr. Cameron worked on previously are Petro-Canada's $43-billion sale to Suncor Energy Inc. in 2009 and Fording Canadian Coal Trust's $14-billion sale in 2008 to Teck Resources Ltd.
While much of Mr. Cameron's experience is at bank-owned and global dealers, he is no stranger to the independents, having also worked at famed 1980s and 1990s-era Canadian boutique Gordon Capital. Gordon was acquired by HSBC Securities (Canada) Inc. in 1998.
Mr. Cameron started his career at Dominion Securities (now RBC Dominion) in 1986.
