General Counsel, Mancal Corporation (WR: 607)

Alberta, Calgary
Posted 2 years ago

We have partnered with Mancal Corporation (“Mancal”), a diverse, privately-owned organization with deep ties to Western Canada. With over 120 years of operations in Canada, Mancal has diligently evolved from roots in the heavy construction industry to nation-building infrastructure projects and currently has operations in energy, coal, real estate, private capital investing and diversified portfolio management. Mancal has a thriving entrepreneurial spirit encompassing over a century of successful undertakings. It has become adept at establishing a significant presence in every industry it pursues.


The General Counsel Role


Mancal is seeking a General Counsel to join its dynamic executive leadership team. Reporting to the President and CEO, the position of General Counsel is an important member of the Mancal team. The successful candidate will take on a highly visible and strategic role within the organization. The individual will be a trusted and valued advisor to the rest of the executive leadership team, the Board of Directors and the President and CEO. This individual will also serve as Corporate Secretary to Mancal.


A particular focus of the General Counsel role will be supporting Mancal’s Corporate Ventures Team, which is focused on strategic private equity and venture capital opportunities that foster innovation, growth, and diversification. Mancal strives to create value for stakeholders and achieve solid returns with direct exposure to new industries, verticals and geographies. Its two-pronged investment thesis encompasses a venture focus on technology driven businesses, and an equity focus on private enterprises with potential to become material operating companies.


The Successful Candidate


The successful candidate for the General Counsel position will be a senior lawyer, with a minimum of 10 years of post-call legal experience, although 15+ years of experience will be preferred. This individual will:


  • Possess a broad legal background with extensive knowledge and experience in corporate/commercial law, specifically with an emphasis on complex corporate transactions and corporate governance
  • Have strong leadership skills and management presence with an ability to engage within a complex set of internal and external stakeholders, including shareholders, external board of directors and internal clients
  • Be a “hands-on”, commercially-minded senior lawyer and strategic thinker, always trying to anticipate issue and estimate risks that may face the business


Previous in-house experience serving as part of an executive leadership team is a strong asset for this role.
