Camilla Sutton is moving from Scotiabank to head Women in Capital Markets (WCM), the non-profit announced Thursday.

Sutton, formerly Scotiabank’s global head of foreign exchange, will take over as WCM’s president and CEO on Jan. 22.

“Camilla is the right leader for WCM during this important stage of growth, and I am confident she will continue to drive change in Canada’s boardrooms, executive offices and workplaces,” said Mari Jensen, chair of the WCM board of directors, in a release.

Sutton’s career in capital markets has spanned both the sell and buy sides, with senior roles at OMERS and BMO Capital Markets, in addition to Scotiabank. Her work has involved trading, sales, portfolio management, global macro strategy and research across multiple asset classes, including equities, FX, fixed income and derivatives.

She is a CFA Society Toronto board member at large and has served on several WCM committees.

“Women in Capital Markets has played a critical role in advancing the conversation about gender diversity in the financial services industry and within the broader Canadian economy,” Sutton said in a release.

She is taking over from Jeannie Collins-Ardern, a WCM board member who has headed the organization since August, when former President and CEO Jennifer Reynolds resigned.
