Bruce Heyman has been sworn in as the new U.S. Ambassador to Canada during a ceremony in Washington D.C.
Heyman spent 33 years working with Goldman Sachs and has served as a board member for the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Foundation.
"I have dedicated my professional life to realizing the potential of businesses and individuals alike," he said in a promotional video released Wednesday by the American Embassy. "I bring that same passion and commitment to the infinite potential of our bilateral relationship. As Ambassador, my top priority is to enhance our economic partnership."
Heyman is expected to present his letter of credence to Governor General David Johnston in the coming days.
Heyman replaces David Jacobson, who left the post to become the Vice Chairman of BMO Financial Group in Chicago.
