OEN ANNOUNCEMENTS

Congratulations!

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the OEN, I am pleased to announce that John Loucks has assumed the role of President and CEO of the OEN effective September 1, 2017. John joined the OEN earlier this year as President, and has been working closely with the former CEO, Gord McBrien in transitioning Gord's responsibilities, and absorbing as much of Gord's wealth of knowledge as possible. For his part, although Gord is retiring, he will naturally remain engaged with the OEN, and will continue as Special Advisor to the CEO. As one of the founders of the OEN, it is great to still be able to call upon Gord's knowledge and insight.

Please join me in congratulating both of these gentlemen.

Grant Buchanan
Chair, OEN
