September 15, 2021 – Incite is excited to announce the formation of an advisory board dedicated to growing our M&A practice.

In recent years, Incite has made concerted efforts to focus our offerings in a way that serves the needs of clients through mergers, acquisitions, or divestitures. Our M&A practice continues to grow. We are well positioned to support growth and add value throughout the transaction journey in the areas of strategic communications, stakeholder engagement, and post-merger integration.

To further strengthen Incite’s M&A practice, we are establishing an advisory board dedicated to helping us enhance and expand this offering. We are pleased to announce that the following individuals have accepted a position on our board:

  • Ron Dersch, President & CEO, Dersch & Associates Inc. Ron brings 20 years in the investment banking industry and has led mid-market advisory transactions in the energy, manufacturing, distribution, financial services, and technology sectors. Ron is the co-founder and past-President of the ACG Edmonton chapter.
  • Mark McRae, Partner, Sequeira Partners. Mark has over 15 years of experience in corporate finance, mergers, acquisitions, and restructuring mandates. He is a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Business Valuator with a background prior to Sequeira in corporate development and strategic planning.
  • Ian Reynolds, Partner, Bennett Jones LLP. Ian has over 20 years experience advising corporations, private equity firms, and private family offices on strategic planning, risk management, mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and corporate reorganizations. He has received the Q.C. and ICD.D designations and has been recognized several times as one of Canada’s leading lawyers by Lexpert.

Ron, Mark, and Ian bring significant M&A experience to Incite. Their track record, expertise, and network will help Incite achieve our goal of building the strongest M&A communications and post-merger integration advisory practice for privately held, mid-market firms in Western Canada. “We are thrilled to launch this board with such dedicated M&A leaders,” said Ted Kouri, Founder and President of Incite. “Their knowledge, connections, and perspective will enable us to better deliver our M&A advisory offering to our clients.”

Incite’s M&A advisory board launches officially October 1, 2021 and will meet quarterly. The board will provide ongoing advisory support to Incite as we expand our M&A practice and work through active client engagements.
