CHF Investor Relations Welcomes Mark Lackey as Executive VP

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 19, 2012) - CHF Investor Relations (Cavalcanti Hume Funfer Inc.) today announced its newest addition to the senior management team: Executive Vice President, Mark Lackey. Charged with business development, client positioning, staff team coaching and education, market analysis and special projects, Mark will also be continuing as a regular guest on BNN television where he has already made 20 appearances this year.

Mark has 30 years of experience in energy, mining, central and corporate banking, investment research and strategy. Mark began his career as an economist at the Bank of Canada where he was responsible for U.S. economic forecasting. Later, he was a senior manager of commodities at the Bank of Montreal. From there, Mark moved to the oil industry, which ran some of the largest mining operations, spending 10 years in various positions at Gulf Canada, Chevron Canada and Petro Canada. His brokerage and corporate finance vocation took him to Brawley Cathers Limited, Blackmont Capital, Hampton Securities and most recently he was investment strategist at Pope & Company Limited. Mark has also been a contributing sector expert to Streetwise Reports' The Gold Report.

With many different career paths open to him, Mark and CHF's Chief Executive Officer, Cathy Hume, agreed that he could make a valuable contribution in the investor relations arena. For many years Mark has interacted with IR practitioners who have worked to attract his interest and endorsement, during which time he has witnessed the good, the bad and the best in IR.

"I wasn't going to make the move into IR unless I could be a part of a group I respect and admire. I feel at home at CHF where so many of its executives have backgrounds in brokerage, trading and investment sales. Cathy Hume has been a friend and a colleague for about 20 years; I actually first knew her father, H. Douglas Hume of Nuinsco Resources Limited. It's probably because Cathy was a retail broker for 11 years that CHF's brand of investor relations is so effective and superior to most every other IR group I've encountered," explained Mr. Lackey.
