EMERGE Announces Board Nomination of Ian McKinnon, as Director

06/16/2022 | 07:01am EDT

TORONTO, June 16, 2022 /CNW/ - EMERGE Commerce Ltd. (TSXV: ECOM) ("EMERGE" or the "Company"), a diversified acquirer and operator of niche e-commerce brands, is pleased to highlight the nomination of Mr. Ian McKinnon to the Company's board of directors at the Company's upcoming annual general meeting to be held June 28, 2022 (the "AGM"), as outlined in the Company's management information circular dated May 16, 2022 (the "Circular").

Mr. McKinnon has been a director of numerous public and private technology companies since 1995, including 12 years on the board of Constellation Software Inc. (TSX: CSU) from 2006 to 2018. Among other roles, he currently serves as chairman of the board of directors of MessagePoint, a privately owned technology company, and as a director of TSX-listed, Sylogist Ltd. (TSX: SYZ). Prior to 2007, he was President and Chief Executive Officer of TSX/Nasdaq-listed Certicom Corp (2002 to 2007) and TSX-listed Promis Systems Corporation (1995 to 2000). From 1981 to 1995 he held various sales and senior management positions at Digital Equipment Corporation in Canada and Singapore where he served as Managing Director. Mr. McKinnon is a graduate of McMaster University and attended the INSEAD Business School Advanced Management Program.

"We are truly fortunate to have Ian accept the board nomination, pending shareholder approval.  Ian has priceless experience in technology, M&A, and public markets, perhaps none more relevant than his 12 years on the board of Constellation Software, one of the Canada's most successful and valuable growth-by-acquisition companies. We welcome his partnership and strongly believe it to be in the best interest of shareholders to have him join the board as independent director," said Ghassan Halazon, Founder and CEO of EMERGE.

Assuming the election of all nominees set out in the Circular by shareholders of the Company at the AGM, Mr. McKinnon is expected to become the Company's third independent board member, alongside Mr. John Kim and Mr. Drew Green (Chairman).

Ian McKinnon commented on his nomination, "I've observed how Ghassan and the EMERGE team have scaled their business methodically and through disciplined capital allocation. If appointed, I look forward to helping EMERGE successfully evolve and execute their strategic growth plan."

Drew Green, Chairman of EMERGE commented, "I am pleased that Ian has accepted the board nomination. Ian's financial acumen and decades of experience scaling technology companies will be invaluable to EMERGE, as we continue to acquire and operate niche e-commerce brands."

In addition, the Company announces that Mr. Nima Besharat has resigned as Director and Corporate Secretary of the Company effective June 15, 2022. The Company thanks Mr. Besharat for his services to the board of directors.
