What does LinkedIn tell us:
Matsumoto is listed as Sales Manager for Ledingham McAllister, a developer, and has worked for them since January 2012 to present. She also just happens to have been a Sales Manager for MAC Marketing Solutions from 2007 to 2009.

You have to wonder... if it's a Ledingham McAllister development that's the centre of the RECBC disciplinary decision, you don't suppose it's one that MAC was also marketing do you?
If so was Matsumoto indirectly working for MAC Marketing when this breach of conduct was committed? Was she leading the MAC sales team at the development?
