Mark Adams has been appointed senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary at AGF Management Ltd., stepping into the role previously held by Judy Goldring, who will continue in her role as executive vice president and chief operating officer.
In his new role, Adams is responsible for all legal, corporate governance, and compliance matters in Canada and abroad. Goldring will focus on the long-term growth and strategy of investment management company AGF.
Adams has been with the investment management company since he joined the it as legal counsel in April 2004. He went to AGF from McMillan LLP, where he spent five years as a securities lawyer. He moved in-house, he says, because he wanted to become more involved in the day-to-day business strategy within the scope of the Canadian capital markets.
