I see that a native New Brunswicker was primarily responsible for convincing Areva to take a long hard look at New Brunswick. He made the case internally that NB should be a serious market for the French multinational firm. Now I see that an ex-Monctonian played an important role in bringing the new CGI IT centre to Moncton. That facility is initially just an outsourced operation for Atlantic Lottery – they claim to be plans to build it much bigger.
That’s the one benefit – hopefully – of sending thousands of NBers out there. We should track down everyone in a middle and senior management position and make the case for investing here.
