Lindsey has worked in the capital markets space for over a decade. She got her start in venture capital and has spent the majority of her career with CIBC Capital Markets Risk Management (CMRM) as a risk manager sitting on the trading floor. She mainly worked with the foreign exchange and global collateral finance businesses to ensure the associated risks were properly captured and remained within the risk appetite set out by the Board of Directors.

Lindsey is a passionate advocate for gender diversity, having led committees within the CMRM space and attended women’s advocacy events regularly. She is also a very active member in her community at Yonge and Eglinton in Toronto. Lindsey has successfully lobbied for a number of safety precautions around the Eglinton LRT construction beside Eglinton Junior Public school. Her lobbying drew attention from the CBC who helped to promote her struggle. Lindsey’s efforts to reduce overcrowding in the school have been documented in multiple local print articles and she has secured the help of Premier Wynne to review expanding the school property.

Lindsey is the mother of 2 young girls. She has a BSc in math and holds CFA and PRM designations.

Olga came to WCM in 2017 with an interest and passion in women's success and self-realization. Before coming to WCM she graduated from Centennial College's Graphic Design program with high honours where she was granted many awards for her work. She always aims to discover and learn new things; from this she found her passion and talent in arts and design after her first degree in computer programming.


Olga has a variety of work experience, starting from web-master freelancer to magazine layout designer and to self-employed event-manager, brand-designer and idea wizard - all in one person!


She strongly believes that it is the design that influences peoples' perception of everything they face and thus it can have a positive impact if done right and can send a strong message between the lines.


So with her high attention to detail, creativity and quality of work, she is responsible for all aspects of WCM's brand, feel and look.


She is happy to be a part of the WCM movement and help support women in capital markets through design.
