IMAX appoints new head of investor relations
IMAX Corporation has appointed Stephen Davidson as its new head of investor relations, effective immediately. He reports into the company’s CEO, Richard Gelfond, reflecting an elevation of the IR function. Davidson's predecessor reported into the company's CFO, Patrick McClymont.
Davidson joins from Brightline, now known as Virgin Trains USA, where he served as head of investor relations working toward the company’s IPO.
He boasts almost three decades of capital markets experience, having previously held senior investor relations roles at MSCI, NYSE Euronext, MarketAxess, Deutsche Bank and Bankers Trust New York. He also served as the director of global marketing and communications at Prudential Financial earlier in his career.
‘Throughout his career, Steve has been consistently successful at guiding the firms he represents as they tell their story to investors,’ Gelfond says in a statement. ‘With nearly 30 years on Wall Street, Steve has the strong experience, relationships and understanding of the markets to help IMAX communicate the value it creates for shareholders.’
Davidson says in a statement that he is ‘excited to help underscore the value [of] this unique global brand’. He succeeds Michael Mougias, who was unveiled as the new head of IR at blockchain company tZERO earlier this week. Mougias spent six years at IMAX, with two of those as head of investor relations.
