Women in Capital Markets is pleased to announce the winners of the 2010 WCM Executive Coaching Award Program, sponsored by BMO Nesbitt Burns. This is the third year of the program, which provides career coaching and development services from Felix Global Corp. to qualified senior women working in the capital markets in Canada.

“The Executive Coaching Award Program is designed to support the development of women in senior leadership roles in the financial industry,” said Martha Fell, chief executive officer of WCM. “Having a trusted executive coach helps these focused individuals harness their strengths and provides them with the confidence and self-awareness to achieve their business and personal goals. It’s a win-win.”

The 2010 Career Coaching Award winners are:

Julie Card, Ascent Investment Management; Patricia Graham, RBC Capital Markets; Kathryn Smith, TD Securities; Camilla Sutton, Scotia Capital; and Sheryl Holmes, CIBC.

These winners were chosen from applicants across a broad range of Canadian financial institutions. The program is directed at applicants with a minimum of 10 years’ experience who have already achieved significant success in their careers. Candidates must be currently employed in Canadian capital markets, which includes the issuing, buying, selling or trading of securities, currencies and derivatives, and must demonstrate how the award would help them further their career goals in an environment still dominated by male professionals.

“The WCM Executive Coaching Award Program is opening up significant opportunities for women in the workplace – ensuring competent and talented women succeed in the corporate world,” said Charyl Galpin, chief operating officer, BMO Nesbitt Burns.
