McArthur%2CMarc-OCRI.JPGadds two names to its roster, Marc McArthur (left) and Marco Fiori. Marc joins the organization as manager of the Ottawa Cleantech Initiative. In this role, he will work to ensure that Ottawa companies involved in clean technology are able to grow and innovate through appropriate collaborations and partnerships with universities, government research agencies, funding programs and investors. “There is a lot of potential for Clean Technology in Ottawa,” says Marc. “We already have world-class and world-leading companies, research facilities and university programs in clean technology right here. With the right support and collaboration there is no reason why Ottawa cannot become the centre for clean technology in Canada...” Marc grew up in Georgetown, Guyana, where in high school he became an active volunteer mobilizing young people to effect change. He moved to Canada in 2001 and enrolled in Carleton U’s Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering Program, from which he graduated with distinction. Before coming to OCRI, he spent two years as a manager of an Ottawa-based hazardous and industrial waste management company. Marco Fiori joins OCRI as the investment coordinator of OCRI’s Investment and Commercialization Business Unit. His responsibilities include supporting the management, administration and marketing of Canada’s Top 10, a program that recognizes and assists promising tech companies looking for investment. Born and raised in Ottawa, Marco has an in-depth knowledge of the community and local business.
