Former dealer named OMVIC CEO


John Carmichael has been named the new CEO of the Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council (OMVIC).

The agency’s board of directors made the announcement this week saying they wanted to ensure they found the right person with the necessary experience and skill set to lead OMVIC

“OMVIC has earned a remarkable reputation with the government, with consumers and dealers, and with other regulators and law enforcement agencies,” Carmichael said in a release.

“As a member of OMVIC’s founding board, I am very proud of the reputation for excellence this organization has earned, in no small part due to its commitment to stakeholder engagement, and I am excited to continue this incredible work.”

Carmichael was a Member of Parliament representing Don Valley West from 2011 to 2015.

Prior to his time in government, he was the owner of City Buick, one of the largest General Motors dealerships in the Toronto area.
