At today’s Annual General Meeting of The Brampton Board of Trade, the Board was pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Jaipaul Massey-Singh as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective December 11th, 2023.
Mr. Massey-Singh, a dedicated and long-time member, volunteer, and former Chair of the Brampton Board of Trade, brings over twenty-five years of diverse experience in entrepreneurial and corporate environments, spanning manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, and the cannabis sector.
Mr. Massey-Singh has a proven track record of leadership in operations, finance, and HR, coupled with a passion for innovation. He has successfully built organizations, developed innovative products and services, and led high-performing teams to drive growth. Additionally, Mr. Massey-Singh has been an active community leader for more than 15 years, chairing boards and leading committees in areas such as libraries, food banks, and post-secondary education.
Daniel Lewis, Chair of the Board, expressed confidence in Mr. Massey-Singh’s ability to take the Board of Trade to new heights. “Jaipaul’s experience will help propel the Board of Trade to new heights. His track record of creating equity and opportunities in our community is strong,” said Lewis.

Mr. Massey-Singh assumes the CEO role succeeding Todd Letts, who served for a commendable nine years. Last August, Mr. Letts announced his intention to step down as CEO in January 2024, prompting the Board of Directors to conduct a rigorous North American-wide search. Mr. Massey-Singh emerged as the top candidate from a highly competitive talent pool, attracting more than 400 applicants.
“I am honoured to have been selected as the new CEO of the Board of Trade. I am excited to leverage my experience to contribute to the growth and success of our vibrant community,” said Mr. Massey-Singh.
