Toron Inc. introduces its new management team and board of directors

MONTREAL, Nov. 16, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Toron Inc. (OTCBB:TRON) - (The Company) is pleased to introduce its management team and board of directors. On August 5, 2011 we appointed Michael Whitehead as president, chief executive officer, chief financial officer and as a member to our board of directors.

Mr. Whitehead is a seasoned businessman who has an extensive background in resource financing, mining, exploration, and running public companies.

Mr. Whitehead earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1982 from the University of Alberta. After graduation, he went on to work as an investment advisor at CIBC Wood Gundy, a company involved in numerous resource financing in North America. By 1992, Mr. Whitehead left Wood Gundy and started working with different resource companies, focused on raising capital worldwide.

Then in 1995, he founded Quadra Resources, a company concentrated on exploration prospects in the Philippines, Central Asia, and North Africa. The company was sold for an undisclosed amount in 2003.

Since that time, Mr. Whitehead's focus shifted to grass root level companies, which he finances and makes public on North American and European Stock Exchanges. He has been the president, CEO, and Director of Silver Corp., a private Canadian company. His main responsibilities included seeking out strategic opportunities and managing day-to-day activities. Before that, he held the same positions in Copper One Inc., a mineral exploration company in Vancouver and in Vital Resources Corp., an exploration company in Montreal.

We appointed Mr. Whitehead as our CEO and director due to his mining experience, ability to finance mining interests, and his knowledge of publicly listed companies.

In addition, on October 25, 2011 the Company appointed Mr. Ramzan Savji to act as its vice president, secretary and as a member to our board of directors.

Since August 2000, Mr. Savji incorporated and founded Telecommunications Supply Line Ltd., a telecommunications installation and networking material supplier in Kenya, wherein he continues to be the Managing Director of the company on a day-to-day basis. 

Mr. Ramzan Savji has more than 30 years of experience in the banking and business sector. He has studied Banking and Business Administration in Germany and was employed with the Deutsche Bank A.G., Munich, Germany in their letters of credit department from June 1971 to August 1974. He then became the Area Representative for Societe Generale, the French & International Bank from May 1988 to April 1995. He covered Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and Malawi. He was responsible for building up and enhancing correspondent banking relationships between Societe Generale and the banks domiciled in the above countries.  He was also responsible for lobbying and promoting business for the French companies and arranging short, medium and long term lines of credit for project financing for both, the Public Sector as well the Private Sector.

We appointed Mr. Savji as our officer and director due to his financial background, contacts with banking institutions and for his connections in East Africa.

Together, Mr. Whitehead and Mr. Savji are very pleased to join Toron Inc. and with their extensive backgrounds they will be leading the Company in a new direction.

After assuming the new leadership role of Toron Inc., Mr. Whitehead was quoted as saying, "I am pleased to announce that the company will dedicate itself towards building a sound future for its shareholders with the focus of one day being able to have a producing mine."
