MONTRÉAL, Oct. 15, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - The Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal held its annual meeting of members today in virtual format. The board of directors elected Shahir Guindi, National Co-Chair of Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP and member of the firm's partnership board, to chair the Chamber's board of directors for a second term.

"It is with a great sense of responsibility and pride that I renew my mandate at the head of the Chamber's board of directors for the next year," said Shahir Guindi, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal. "The situation we are experiencing right now is unprecedented, particularly for the Montréal business community, which is plunged in the worst economic crisis in decades and reflecting on the major recovery that must follow. In the next year, I will continue to do everything in my power to respond to the needs, expectations and concerns of the city's businesses."

"The past few months were particularly difficult for all Montrealers and the business community," Mr. Guindi said. "I would like to congratulate the entire Chamber team, which worked tirelessly to give the business community a voice in this period of crisis and which showed innovation and agility to quickly offer members the support and services they very much needed."

With over 25 years of experience in mergers and acquisitions, private equity and corporate financing, Shahir Guindi is a prominent attorney, one of the most recognized in his area of practice. His experience extends to cross-border and international transactions, growth strategies and private and public financing. As part of his private equity and venture capital practice, he has advised funds on their formation and investments. He has represented some of the leading technology and biotechnology companies in the country.

Mr. Guindi also sits on the boards of directors of Business Development Bank of Canada and GFL Environmental Inc., and he is a member of the board of several other companies. In 2017, he received the title of Advocatus Emeritus from the Barreau du Québec.
