Malcolm Bruce is first ever the Chief Executive Officer of Edmonton Global, a regional economic development corporation that drives growth and investment in the Edmonton region.
Edmonton Global is a joint venture owned equally by 14 municipalities in the Edmonton region. Before its creation, economic development in the Edmonton region was often done at a municipal rather than regional level. Edmonton Global was created to change this. In his work, Malcolm brings together regional strengths and networks to seize on the potential of emerging markets.
Malcolm has a strong history of leadership in the Edmonton region. Prior to being CEO of Edmonton Global, Malcolm was the CEO of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board, a regional planning corporation. He oversaw the smooth transition of the Board membership, leadership and mandate. Prior to that role he had a long career in progressively senior leadership positions within the Canadian Military.
He is also the former Chair of the Consider Canada City Alliance (CCCA) which represents the 12 largest economies in Canada that account for 84% of all foreign direct investment in the country.
His skills in leadership, strategic planning and organizational change have been sought out to support the strategic planning and operations on many large complex issues, including at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and the 2013 floods in Southern Alberta.
He holds a BA degree in History from the University of Manitoba, two MA degrees from the Royal Military College of Canada, and the ICD.D designation from the Institute of Corporate Directors.
