EDMONTON, ALTA. – The Alberta Motor Vehicle Industry Council (AMVIC) Board of Directors said Malcolm Knox is its new CEO, effective Jan. 29, 2018.

“Mr. Knox has extensive qualifications and executive experience, with a proven track record managing change in regulated business environments,” said Bill Burnett, AMVIC board of directors chair.

“We are excited Malcolm has agreed to join us as AMVIC continues to emphasize consumer protection while implementing changes to the automotive industry through the Consumer Protection Act (formerly the Fair Trading Act) and associated regulations.”
