Mary Jean McFall joins Ross Video as in-house general counsel
Mary Jean McFall has recently joined Ross Video in the new role of general counsel. McFall will be based at the company’s Ottawa campus, with responsibility for all corporate and commercial legal activities including coordination with external legal counsel globally.
A graduate of Harvard University and the University of Toronto, McFall brings over twenty years of legal experience to Ross Video as well as her background as an active longtime community volunteer. She is already extremely familiar with Ross Video, having guided Ross through several of its recent acquisitions in her previous role as a partner with a leading Eastern Ontario law firm.
Commenting on her appointment, David Ross, CEO, reflects on the growth of the company and the increasing need for in-house counsel. “Ross Video’s growth over the last twenty-eight years has been very well documented, and a big part of that has been down to our acquisitions. Mary Jean has been highly influential in helping us navigate our way through these deals, as well as the corporate and contractual work that is part of our business.
“Given that our plans for the next twenty-eight years are no less ambitious, the time is absolutely right for us to appoint an in-house counsel and Mary Jean is a natural choice”.
For her part, McFall highlights the dynamic nature of the Ross brand as a key factor in her move. “I’m thrilled to be taking on this role. Ross is a fast-moving business, with a success profile and culture that really sets it apart from its competition. I’ve consistently been impressed by the ambition of the management team since we first met, and I’m excited for the future”.
