Canadian Securities Exchange CEO, Richard Carleton, recognized as 2018 Captain of Industry by American Trade Association for Cannabis and Hemp
Toronto, November 21, 2018 – The Canadian Securities Exchange is pleased to announce that CEO Richard Carleton was honoured with the “2018 Captains of Industry” award by the American Trade Association for Cannabis and Hemp (“ATACH”). The award, the association’s most prestigious honour, was presented to Mr. Carleton at a reception at the Las Vegas Country Club in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 15 in recognition of the groundbreaking capital markets work being done by the CSE in the cannabis and hemp industry in North America.
“It is an honour to have the work of the entire Canadian securities industry recognized by the leading industry trade association in the United States,” said Mr. Carleton. “Although the CSE’s efforts were singled out, none of the advances made by the industry would be possible without the commitment and courage of the cohort of entrepreneurs, and the investors, investment dealers, and professional advisers who have helped build and fund a vibrant and growing industry.”
