i4Media announces additions to its Management Team

(Calgary, Alberta) i4Media today announced the appointment of Joe Fardell as Chief Financial Officer and Julian Hallett as Sales and Marketing Manager.

"We are very excited to announce these additions to our team as we move forward this month with an aggressive timetable of acquisitions and a second round of financing," commented i4Media President and CEO Cameron MacDonald. "Julian comes to us with an impressive background in generating results and is a young and eager professional with expertise in a wide range of areas. Joe Fardell’s track record speaks for itself as he brings a solid combination of financial, sales and marketing, and senior management experience."

Mr. Fardell comes to i4Media following an strong 8 year tenure as President and CEO of Calgary Tourism where he built the organization and generated impressive results and rave reviews from both industry and government.

"We are very fortunate to attract a leader of Joe’s caliber to play a key role on our initial management team," commented i4media director Michael Palmer, also a veteran of the travel industry. "Joe’s financial savvy will be crucial for us, but his excellent reputation and network of contacts in Western Canada and around the world will also be of great benefit to the company."

Meridian Merchant Capital Canada was engaged to assist with the start-up of this innovative new media company established to optimize Internet opportunities for traditional and new media content providers.

The Calgary based company, i4media Corporation, has been put together by Meridian Managing Director and experienced Internet and television entrepreneur Randy Lennon and the founder of Alberta’s first Internet company Alberta Supernet and the Venture Alberta Forum, Randy Thompson.

“i4Media is the holding company for Digital Media and other traditional media companies,” explained Randy Thompson. “When the sum of the parts are placed together, i4Media companies work collaboratively to drive new business opportunities in the area of social networking, content sharing, digital advertising, content purchasing and licensing, but most importantly, i4Media companies share a vision that high quality content in traditional media and digital media will always be the engine for sustainability.”

Joining Lennon and Thompson as the initial corporate directors are interim president Cameron MacDonald, founder and president of The Macam Group of Companies, corporate secretary Wayne Tinker, Barrister & Solicitor and Vice President of Investicare Seniors Housing Corp, Michael Palmer, president of Palmco Inc., and former president of Western International Communications Alberta (now the Global television stations) and currently vice president of marketing and sponsorship for the Calgary Flames Limited Partnership, Jim Bagshaw.
