As co-founder and CEO, I lead the team creating the largest open access dark fibre network in the Maritimes and the only NB based telecom company in the market. Across our expansive network we deliver a suite of telecom services along with our partners and are capable of delivering n x 100G connectivity to our customers.

Over the course of the last 10 years, we have built the largest open access dark fibre network in Canada, spanning almost 2000km by the end of this year. As customers we have some of the world’s largest content and connectivity providers, Canada’s research and education network, Atlantic Canada’s largest industrial users, Federal and Provincial Governments and a host of enterprise businesses from financial services to car dealerships.

I wake up every day, loving what I do, the business of enabling innovation and economic development through the efficient transfer of information.

Previously I envisioned, created and with the help of a tremendous group of associates, built the 3rd largest ISP in the Province of NB. We delivered a reliable and affordable wireless broadband experience to almost 2000 customers. In 2008 the company was sold to Barrett Xplore, another Woodstock based company.
