Montreal-based Jarislowsky Fraser Ltd. has moved two of its senior executives to new roles, the investment management company announced Monday.

Jarislowsky Fraser appointed Maxime Ménard as president and CEO. He has been with the firm since 2003 and has over 20 years of experience in the investment industry. Ménard previously held the position of executive vice-president, providing leadership in building the business, setting the strategic framework and developing partnerships.

G. Pierre Lapointe will take over the role of vice-chair of the board of directors; he continues in his role as head of private wealth management at the company.

Lapointe has spent most of his career at Jarislowsky Fraser after joining the firm in 1985. He has held various senior positions, including more than 15 years as executive vice-president and the last six years as president and chair of the executive committee.

The appointments took effect on Nov. 23.

The Bank of Nova Scotia announced its acquisition of Jarislowsky Fraser in February.
