The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) Canada has announced the composition of its executive committee for 2012-2014.

The committee includes:

Chairman: Gary Ostoich, president, Spartan Fund Management

Deputy chairman: Andrew Doman, chief operating officer, Man Investments Canada

Legal counsel: Michael Burns, partner, McMillan LLP

Secretary: Paul Patterson, vice president, private investments, Integrated Asset Management (IAM) Group

Treasurer: Chris Pitts, partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP

The executive committee also includes James Burron, who is AIMA Canada’s chief operating officer.

Ostoich, one of the founders of AIMA Canada, was elected to an additional two-year term as chairman, after having already led the organization since 2009. Doman, Burns and Pitts have also previously served on the committee.

Doman succeeds Eamonn McConnell, who is stepping down as deputy chairman after having served in that post since 2008. Patterson, a new member of the committee, will fill the secretary position, which was previously held by Doman.

In announcing the new executive committee membership, Ostoich expressed gratitude to McConnell for his distinguished past service and welcomed Patterson to the committee.

He also expressed sincere appreciation to continuing members Doman, Burns, Pitts and Burron for their “important contributions to AIMA Canada and the alternative investment industry in recent years. I look forward to continuing to work with the committee over the next two years to expand our contribution to the industry and our growing membership,” Ostoich said.
