Jamie brings over 40 years of experience in Investment Banking and the Oil and Gas industry. Despite an unassuming presence he is a keen competitor while still maintaining unparalleled transparency with clients and gives them a high-level of trust and peace of mind.
Jamie’s first half of his career was in the Oil and Gas Industry beginning at Sun Oil company (Suncor), Hudson Bay Oil, Gas/Dome Petroleum and Canadian Hunter on both the commercial and technical sides of the business.
He transitioned to the Investment Industry when he partnered with Brett Wilson to form Wilson Mackie and Company. This merger and acquisition advisory boutique became the Corporate Finance department of FirstEnergy Capital Corp at its founding. There he served as a Partner and Managing Director of Corporate Finance.
When Jamie left FirstEnergy he began a new career as a Retail Investment Advisor at First Marathon Securities. Soon after its purchase by the National Bank he left to form a new full-service Investment boutique called J.F Mackie and Company. This firm merged with Research Capital in 2009 to form Mackie Research Capital. In 2011 he and his team, The Mackie Wealth Group moved to Macquarie Private Wealth. Macquarie was acquired by Richardson Wealth (formerly Richardson GMP) in 2013.
His B.Sc. degree from the University of Calgary and Master’s Degree from Yale University have helped him in his career to see the “big picture”, be in constant learning mode and adapt quickly to the changing world of investing.
Jamie is passionate about the outdoors and loves to hike, climb, camp, cross-country and back country skiing as well as fish.
