The Canadian Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Professionals (CAIRP) is a national professional organization representing nearly 1,500 members, associates and candidates. CAIRP members act as trustees in bankruptcy, administrators of consumer proposals, receivers, liquidators, agents, monitors, and consultants in insolvency matters. CAIRP was created as a non-profit corporation in 1979 to advocate for a fair, transparent and effective system of insolvency/restructuring administration throughout Canada. Today, over 90% of Canada’s Licenced Insolvency Trustees are members of CAIRP and hold the Chartered Insolvency and Restructuring Professional (CIRP) designation, which is administered through CAIRP. 

CAIRP wishes to recruit an accomplished leader to take the association to its next level of achievement in supporting, educating and advocating for its members. Reporting to the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors, the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will co-develop and execute the organization’s strategic plans and will be responsible for the successful financial and operations management, team development, strategic leadership and growth of the organization. Possessing exceptional self-awareness, personal accountability and teamwork skills, the new President and CEO will be a genial leader who thrives in a fast-paced, hands-on, collaborative environment.

The ideal candidate will have strong business and financial acumen, with a proven ability to effectively manage difficult situations, navigate challenging environments and interact with diverse stakeholder groups.  With a dossier of demonstrated achievements in growing and strengthening an organization, gained either in executive management or as an insolvency practitioner, the preferred candidate will effectively leverage the skills, talents and knowledge of CAIRP member volunteers and staff to help ensure that CAIRP achieves its mission. The organization’s vision is one where CAIRP and its members are recognized as the go-to professionals in providing expertise in insolvency and restructuring and in finding solutions for individuals and companies in financial difficulty.
