“ECG and Robertson have experienced tremendous movement over the past four years,” says Gregg Wilson, Managing Partner of Maxim Partners, and a member of the Board of Directors. “With Liz at the helm, and Paul driving the Board, we are in a great position to continue this exciting trajectory that we’ve been on.”

“Liz and I have worked together for ten years. She not only has sound business knowledge and a keen eye for strategy, but also a bold sense of leadership that is able to ignite and energize those around her. When Liz reimagines the path to take, we know it will lead to great things,” says Holden. 

For Choi, it is about continuing the work that she’s established and leading ECG through the post-pandemic era. “I am both humbled and honoured to have this opportunity to lead the ECG and Robertson teams into our next chapter and expanding our reach. I believe fully in the transformative power of people-first systems – and in the amazing team we have so intentionally created here,” says Choi.
