A New Sheriff Is In Town

A New Sheriff Is In Town

Google Canada has a new sheriff in town and it is non other than our friend, Jonathan Lister.  Thanks to my Globe and Mail (Business) Twitter feed, I was alerted to the story Google Canada’s New Boss Eyes Growth.

The appointment truly could not have gone to a better guy. I first began working with Jonathan when he headed up customer service for a web hosting company owned by a friend of mine. To this day, it is still the best customer service experience Agoracom has ever had.

As such, it was no surprise to see Jonathan get scooped away by AOL Canada, where we watched him flourish and move up the ranks at a pretty rapid pace.  Before long, I received a call from Jonathan telling me he was moving on to head up AOL Europe.

Today, he is Google Canada’s new boss. Google is lucky to have him and we look forward to watching him take their Canadian operations to another level. The way Jonathan moves up the ranks, Sergey and Larry may want to keep looking over their shoulder 🙂

Congratulations and good luck Jonathan!
