U.S.Ambassador to Canada to be Vice Chair of Canada’s BMO Financial Group

The United States Ambassador to Canada David Jacobson will join the Bank of Montreal (BMO) Financial Group as Vice-Chair when his term as ambassador ends this July.

Ambassador Jacobson will be based in Chicago and responsible for “building and reinforcing key customer relationships and business development”. He will report to Bill Downe.
