The Toronto-based mort­gage com­pany has been re­build­ing its board and se­nior man­age­ment ranks in re­cent weeks fol­low­ing a se­ries of de­vel­op­ments that has shaken con­fi­dence in the com­pany.

It says James Lis­son will re­place John Marsh, who has been a Home Cap­i­tal di­rec­tor since 1986.

Board chair Brenda Eprile says Lis­son brings “deep ex­per­tise” in ar­eas that are vi­tal to Home Cap­i­tal.

Lis­son spent 25 years at the law firm Osler, Hoskin & Har­court where he was a part­ner and vicechair of its fi­nan­cial ser­vices group fol­lowed by nine years as a part­ner with Fasken Mar­tineau DuMoulin, pri­mar­ily based in Lon­don, Eng­land.

Home Cap­i­tal says Lis­son later worked for the fed­eral jus­tice depart­ment as a con­sul­tant on com­mer­cial law.
