Brent Reuter will step into the newly minted position. He most recently served as Principal Investor Relations for the private equity firm Onex Corp.
Before that, he was vice president of asset management at the Canadian big bank CIBC and managing director at RBC Investor & Treasury Services in London and Hong Kong.
"With deep international and US-based experience in capital markets, Brent brings Australis a business development and investor relations acumen that is truly exceptional," CEO Scott Dowty said. "I've been following Brent's career for almost two decades and his addition to our executive leadership, based in Toronto, will pay immediate dividends as he fosters strategic partner and investor relationships across North America."
Australis, spun off from Aurora Cannabis Inc (NYSE:ACB) in September, invests primarily in the US cannabis sector. Its stock slipped nearly 3% to C$1.02 on the CSE and 1% to US$0.76 on OTC markets.
