AutoCanada appoints new Chief Financial Officer.
AutoCanada is a multi-location North American automobile dealership group that recently announced the appointment of Mike Borys as its new Chief Financial Officer, effective August 12, 2019.
Borys is a chartered accountant with over 20 years of experience as CFO for both public and private enterprises. He is coming over from PTW Energy Services – an electrical and instrumentation provider, where he served as CFO for 17 years – to join the AutoCanada family. Before PTW Energy Services, Borys was the CFO at Newalta, an engineered environmental solutions provider, from 2008 to 2016; The Bank Group Income Fund, a furniture retailer, from 2005 to 2008; the Famous Players, a movie theatre operator, from 2002 to 2005; and Tricon Canada, a division of Pepsico, which is the franchisor and operator of KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell franchises, for 10 years.
“We are very excited to welcome Mike as our CFO,” said Paul Antony, Executive Chair of the Company. “We are pleased to add such a highly seasoned executive to our team. Mike’s proven track record and extensive finance and management experience will be instrumental in assisting us to continue to execute on our go forward plan in Canada and the U.S.
Paul Antony was also hired last year as AutoCanada’s new Executive Chair. Previously, he was the Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer at CARPROOF, a provider of vehicle history and valuation reports. CARPROOF grew rapidly, earning a regular spot on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and Fast 500 lists and was named Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2011 through 2015.
The company was soon acquired by HIS Markit on December 15, after Antony has served as CEO for about 15 years and nine months. He has remained an active advisor to, and investor in, companies where his experience in software data and automotive can add value.
