Richmond Hill, ON—14 February 2018. Compugen is proud to announce that Terry Mirza, Vice-President of Sales, Canada West and United States, has joined The Canadian Cloud Council, an independent not-for-profit association focused on building an open, accessible and secure technology ecosystem. Membership in The Canadian Cloud Council is expected to strengthen Compugen’s business intelligence, industry connections and business capabilities, providing our customers with tools necessary to effectively leverage technology as a mechanism for growth and value differentiation.
“In joining the Council, Mr. Mirza is aligning Compugen with practical visionaries already on the Council, including representatives of government and government agencies, large technology and resource extraction interests, dynamic entrepreneurial businesses, educational institutions, thought leaders, journalists and policy makers with an intense interest in expanding the positive social role of technology while protecting privacy, security and democratic engagement,” said Robert Brennan Hart, Founder and CEO of The Canadian Cloud Council.
“Compugen looks forward to learning from and sharing with the Council our insights into driving innovation through technology in spheres where we have gained a deep understanding of the challenges and limitations of traditional approaches—for example, the challenge of managing computer service delivery across vast Canadian geographies—while bringing to our customers the best ideas from the vast bank of experience represented by Council members,” said Mr. Mirza.
“Mr. Mirza brings to the council a flare for creative problem solving and a commitment to strengthening the competitive landscape for small and medium-sized businesses through the intelligent use of technology,” concluded Hart.
“Mr. Mirza’s participation in The Canadian Cloud Council supports Compugen’s ongoing efforts—through his board membership in organizations like Kamloops Innovation and C21 Canada—to nurture high-tech education and innovation, and create great jobs across all of our regional and national markets,” said Harry Zarek, President and CEO, Compugen Inc.
