TD’s Irman, BMO’s Tripp Recognized for Helping Women Advance

Nov. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Toronto-Dominion Bank’s Martine Irman and Bank of Montreal’s Eric Tripp were recognized for their efforts supporting women in Canadian capital markets.

Irman, a vice chairman at TD Securities, and Tripp, 57, president of BMO Capital Markets, today received the Women in Capital Markets Award for Leadership, a recognition for senior executives who’ve shown commitment to advancing and supporting women in the securities industry.

“I’m re-energized about wanting to see more women in leadership roles within the securities firm,” Irman, 48, said in an interview. “To be competitive you need to be diverse. We’ve proven that on the bank side and I think the dealer community is getting around to that.”

Bank of Montreal Chief Executive Officer William Downe called Tripp a leader in advancing women in the industry.

“He is an exceptional and influential role model who understands that there can’t be any debate over the interpretation of what support of and advancement of women in capital markets means,” Downe, 61, said in an e-mailed statement.

Mari Jensen, Bank of Nova Scotia’s director of institutional foreign-exchange sales, received the Rising Star award during an event in Toronto sponsored by the nonprofit.

“I’m very fortunate to work for Scotia because I’ve never felt any barriers working there,” Jensen, 39, said in an interview. “They have been incredibly supportive of my career.”

Women in Capital Markets, with 1,200 members, promotes the hiring, advancement and development of women in the capital markets industry.
