FinDev Canada has a new Chief Executive who is set to take up the leadership reins at the development finance institution in June. Last week the organization’s Board of Directors announced that it had tapped Lori Kerr for the permanent role which became vacant late last year following the departure of Paul Lamontagne, FinDev’s first CEO, who stepped down last year after three years heading up the Canadian DFI.
