Enterprises

CIBC (CM: TSX) (CM: NYSE) - The Honourable Jim Prentice, P.C., Q.C., Senior

In his remarks, Mr. Prentice, who as former federal Minister of Industry

CIBC's relationships with corporate clients across Canada and abroad, and for
providing leadership on strategic initiatives to enhance CIBC's position in
the market. He joined the bank following a successful career as a lawyer,
