“We’re delighted to welcome Mr. Trahan,” stated Denis Chamberland, Chairman of the Board of Directors of D-BOX. “With the company evolving towards a technology platform, and with the consumer-led diversification that began last year, his niche expertise in a technological company, will be very helpful. In addition, his understanding of the various business and corporate development models for publicly listed companies with international operations will certainly allow D-BOX to maximize its full growth potential.”
