    BOSTON, June 11 /CNW/ - Canaccord Adams is pleased to announce that
effective today, Jamie Brown has been named President of Canaccord Adams Inc.,
in addition to his duties as Head of Investment Banking. He succeeds Kevin
Dunn who is assuming the title of Vice Chairman of US operations.
    "I am very proud to announce Jamie's appointment to this key leadership
position," said Paul Reynolds, President and CEO of Canaccord Capital Inc. "He
has been integral in the growth of our US operations, doubling banking revenue
and establishing the corporate finance team in a highly competitive
environment since becoming Head of US Investment Banking in May 2006."
    Jamie will continue to work closely with other department heads: Tom
Gabel, Head of US Institutional Sales; Jon Solodar, Head of US Sales Trading &
Trading; Eric Ross, Head of US Equity Research; and Matt Gaasenbeek, Head of
Capital Markets North America. The management team will focus on providing
world class service to clients and the continued expansion of the US capital
markets business.

since 1997. In early 2005, he assumed the role of Managing Director for
Canaccord's corporate finance activities in Vancouver and successfully led the
Public Venture Capital (PVC) operations. He has extensive transactional
experience in each of Canaccord Adams' focused sectors and has been an
integral part of growing US operations.
    Brown has a strong background in project finance and holds a Chartered
Business Valuator designation. He serves on the National Advisory Committee
for the TSX Group Venture Exchange (Toronto Stock Exchange Group). He
graduated with distinction from McGill University (BA).
    After working for the firm for more than six years, Kevin Dunn will
assume the role of Vice Chairman and will focus significant attention on
senior client relations across the firm's business lines, especially in
mergers and acquisitions.
    "Under Kevin's leadership, the integration of Adams Harkness into
Canaccord Adams has been successfully completed and US operations have
expanded considerably. His new role will allow him to build on his extensive
network and vast experience to continue to cultivate long-term relationships
for the firm," continued Reynolds.
