corporate development experience to Genoa's clients.
Prior to founding Genoa in 1999, he

John was instrumental in
creating a ten-fold increase in the
market value of the company's common shares.

the Financial Communications unit of Burson-Marsteller's Toronto office
where he provided counsel to a wide range of clients from the Canada
Deposit Insurance Corporation to Northern Telecom. He served in Ottawa as
Senior Policy Advisor to several federal Cabinet Ministers between 1984 and
1991. In this capacity, he provided strategic policy advice that was
integral to the Government of Canada's privatization of more than a dozen
state-owned enterprises including
Air Canada, Petro Canada, Teleglobe and Canadair.
