 Wes Hall Biography

With over 20 years of experience in corporate governance and shareholder communications, Wes Hall has established himself as the preeminent leader in shareholder advisory services and contested investor situations. Canada’s leading newspaper The Globe & Mail has called him one of the nation’s “most influential powerbrokers” and Canadian Business magazine named him one of the “most powerful business people” in 2016.

Wes founded Kingsdale Advisors in 2003 to provide clients with best-in-class services for communicating with shareholders and managing any transaction or event that requires a shareholder vote. Wes has since enhanced Kingsdale’s wide range of services by building a unique governance advisory practice, specializing in helping issuers meet the changing expectations of shareholders and their proxy advisors, a strategic communications division, and creative department.

Under Wes’ leadership Kingsdale has set itself apart by delivering an unparalleled track record of success for North America’s biggest names including: Air Canada, Barrick, BHP Billiton, Citigroup, CN, CP, Encana, Goldcorp, Talisman, and Suncor. He has been sought out to lead some of the highest profile deals and activist campaigns in North America. They include Enbridge’s $37 billion merger with Spectra Energy, Agrium, and Potash Corp.’s $36 billion merger, Tim Hortons’ $12.5 billion merger with Burger King, Pershing Square Capital Management’s campaign to replace the board of Canadian Pacific Railway, and Petro Canada’s $19 billion merger with Suncor Energy.

Committed to sharing his expertise and setting a new standard in governance leadership, Wes was a founding board member of the Canadian Society of Corporate Secretaries (CSCS) and is regularly featured on BNN, Bloomberg TV, and in The Globe & Mail, Financial Post, The Wall Street Journal, and has appeared on the cover of the Report on Business as “The Fixer”. In 2020, Wes was one of five individuals appointed to the Ontario government’s Capital Markets Modernization Taskforce, an advisory group of experts tasked to review and modernize the province’s capital markets regulations.

Other accomplishments include the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year® Award Recipient 2009 and, in 2011, Wes received the designation ICD.D from the Institute of Corporate Directors’ (ICD) in partnership with the Rotman School of Management of the University of Toronto. In 2015, Wes was the recipient of the Vice Chancellor’s Award and in 2017 an honorary doctorate both from the University of the West Indies.

He is currently a director of SickKids Foundation, board member of Pathways to Education and Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), and former Chairman of the Board of Difference Capital Financial, former Director of Equity Financial Holdings Inc., Longford Energy, Wellgreen Platinum Ltd. and the Exempt Market Dealers Association of Canada.
