Vancouver, Canada ≠ June 28, 2004
Whitenoise Laboratories, Inc. today announced
the appointment of Roy Leahy, as President and CEO.
≥RoyĻs proven ability to provide marketing, sales and
operational leadership, makes him an invaluable asset,
as we now move the company from the laboratory to the
worldwide marketplace.≤ states Andre Brisson, Executive
Vice-President of Business Development and co-founder.
≥Our long search for just the right fit was worthwhile
≠ in the short time that Roy has been with us, the company
has made significant progress in gaining awareness from
potential manufacturing licensees and the financial community.≤
says Stephen Boren CTO and co-founder.
Roy brings more than 20 years of operational and marketing
experience in both global high-tech corporations and start-ups.
Most recently, as President and CEO of Tri-Link Technologies
Inc., he transitioned the company from an R&D lab
to a commercial product company in the voice-data integration
sector, until its purchase in 2002. As President and CEO
of Prism Systems, a Nortel-Telus joint venture, that developed,
manufactured and supported a portfolio of hardware/software
based network management systems, he grew global revenues
to over $100 million.
≥ The potential opportunities for the company are almost
overwhelming. The increasing need for security of information
in todayĻs society is self-evident. The protection of
personal and corporate information, as well as communications
of all forms, including wireless and the Internet are
target areas for Whitenoise Laboratories technology. Whitenoise
can securely encrypt data of all forms at speeds that
were not possible until now. This translates into the
movement of very large amounts of extremely secure data
with little additional delay or latency, an extremely
important attribute in real-time communications. Whitenoise
technology could provide a new generation of security
for the Internet backbone. I am excited by the opportunity
and glad to be on the Whitenoise team.≤ said Roy Leahy.
