Quantum-Secure Data & Communications Software Provider Quantropi Announces Appointment of Ottawa Community Foundation President & CEO Marco Pagani to Chairman of the Board of Directors
(StreetSider) Quantropi Inc., Canadian quantum-secure data and communications software solutions provider, announced today the appointment of Ottawa Community Foundation President & CEO Marco Pagani to the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Founded in Ottawa in 2018, Quantropi is bound to be the standard for quantum-secure data communications – forever unbreakable. Powered by quantum mechanics expressed as linear algebra, our technology encrypts data in transit and data at rest — defending against today’s threats and tomorrow’s quantum-based attacks — without requiring the processing power of a quantum computer. Quantropi’s TrUE quantum-secure key generation, encryption & distribution solutions are accessible via the company’s flagship QiSpace™ platform. By offering an easily deployable, cost-effective, and effortlessly scalable solution that enables organizations to progressively upgrade towards 100% quantum security, Quantropi’s vision is to protect Truth & Trust beyond the information age.
Marco Pagani began his long and successful career as a senior executive in Ottawa’s high-tech sector in 1985, with Nortel Networks (then Bell-Northern Research). He rose across two decades to become president of several Nortel Business Units, managing more than 2,000 employees and over $1 billion in revenue. Having gone on to advise numerous organizations, as well as guide a range of companies through complex, critically necessary turnarounds, he is particularly respected for placing a strong emphasis on ethics and corporate governance in building the culture of the corporate and not-for-profit organizations he leads and supports.
Mr. Pagani is enthusiastic about Quantropi’s prospects. “I see the potential of this company to be a game-changer, to be a lighthouse – for our city, our country and our global business, technology and human communities. It’s more than just an exceptionally promising start-up tech play. It’s a company with an environmental, social and governance (ESG) value system explicitly aimed at contributing to the betterment of our world. In my opinion, co-founder and CEO James Nguyen is an individual bound to become one of the next generation of preeminent business leaders. I look forward to this opportunity to invest my mentoring support in James, and by extension the entire executive team, knowing society will see a significant return on that investment based on our working together to make technology relevant for a greater purpose.”
