Management Changes & Expansion– We are proud to announce that Jason White has recently taken over as President of the Company reporting directly to Clift White as CEO & VP Marketing. We offer full congratulations to Jason in his new position and we’re excited to announce that, with direction from Jason, we have stepped up our expansion efforts on two of Canada’s Coasts by recently opening two regional sales and services offices; One is in Western Newfoundland and Labrador and the other in Surrey BC, with future plans to place staff in Calgary and Edmonton. These offices will give EIT the opportunity to better serve our client bases in these regions and also to reach out to new customers.
“We’ve always done business in Western Canada, explained Jason White, President of EIT. We have been looking to re-establish a personal presence not only on the West coast but also in the prairies for some time and we plan to continue this initiative… A number of EIT employees have family ties in Atlantic Canada and the East coast economy continues to be vibrant and strong. Opening an additional office in Newfoundland, enables EIT to expand to serve the Atlantic Provinces, so this is a very exciting time in our evolution!”
