18 July 2017—Vancouver, BC. Compugen is pleased to announce that Terry Mirza, its Vice President of Sales, Canada West and the United States, has joined the Board of Canadians for 21st Century Learning and Innovation (C21 Canada).
“We are elated to welcome Compugen to the C21 Canada board and family. As one of Canada's largest IT service providers, we look forward to a valued contribution from Terry Mirza, Vice-president of sales, Canada West, who brings a deep insight as key trends emerging, both in industry and education that will impact the skills agenda for schools across Canada,” said Robert Martellacci, President & Co-Founder, C21 Canada
Mr. Mirza says, “our schools are among the best in the world, but they are sometimes technologically under-resourced, leading to an experience gap between school and the rest of life for our media-adept children. We at Compugen, as parents and citizens, aim to advance these issues and give Canada’s children a rich learning experience second to none in the world.”
Mr. Mirza and Compugen’s President and CEO Harry Zarek will be participating in C21’s Canada CEO Academy Summit 150 in Charlottetown, PE, July 19th to 21st, 2017.
