“I cannot say enough about how important a role George has played within the company over the years as he rose from accountant to controller and eventually to CFO. While his day to day presence will be missed, I am extremely thrilled that George has agreed to stay on as Corporate Secretary to ensure that we retain strong continuity within the organization. We wish George and his family the best as he moves towards the next great chapter in his life,” said Cameron Watt, President & Chief Executive Officer, Intouch Insight.
