TORONTO, May 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ: TCX), (TSX: TC) is pleased to announce that Lee Matheson and Gigi Sohn will be standing for election to the Board of Directors. Brad Burnham, co-founder of Union Square Ventures, has decided not to seek reelection. Tucows extends its gratitude to Mr. Burnham for his help, mentorship and dedicated service as a Board member over the past six years.
With an impressive track record in the financial industry, Lee Matheson brings substantial, relevant expertise to the Board nomination. Matheson is a Partner at Edgepoint Wealth Management, one of Tucows' largest shareholders, and has been closely engaged with Tucows as an investor. He is a CFA charterholder with demonstrated business analysis skills and a deep understanding of the technology sector. Matheson's extensive capital market experience and business acumen will make him a valued addition to the Tucows Board of Directors.
Gigi Sohn, a renowned lawyer and consumer advocate, is widely recognized for her contributions to telecommunications, media, and technology law and policy. With her vast experience in the legal field, work as counselor to the FCC Chair from 2013 to 2016, and leadership of telecom and technology policy organizations, she has been instrumental in shaping policies that promote innovation, digital rights, and a free and open Internet. Her deep knowledge and experience as a consumer advocate led President Biden to nominate her for a seat on the FCC in 2021. Sohn's profound knowledge and unwavering commitment to consumer-oriented telecom policy make her an ideal candidate for the Tucows Board of Directors.
Tucows expresses its sincere appreciation to Brad Burnham for his invaluable contributions during his tenure on the Board of Directors. Burnham's extensive experience as a technology executive has been instrumental in helping guide Tucows through significant business milestones.
"We are thrilled to have both Lee Matheson and Gigi Sohn as candidates for our Board of Directors," said Elliot Noss, CEO of Tucows.
