The Canadian Regulatory Technology Association (CRTA) has announced that Wendy Rudd, who was most recently an executive at the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC), has joined its board.

The non-profit trade group — part of the fledgling “regtech” industry — is seeking to foster growth and develop standards in the emerging regtech sector.

“Wendy is well-recognized for her innovative and thoughtful approach and has driven significant change in modernizing regulatory policy and oversight in Canada. This is the type of thinking and positive energy we want on the board to help us elevate the level of conversation and collaboration within the Canadian regtech ecosystem,” CRTA co-chair Donna Bales said in a statement.

Prior to her time at IIROC, Rudd was CEO at alternative trading system TriAct Canada Marketplace, and has also had stints at ITG Canada, CIBC World Markets and the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), among others.
