George Young, Director

In 2010, George served as the past chair of the Huntsville Economic Development Committee, where he first became interested in PMCN and jumped at the opportunity to join the Board. He is most invested in what PMCN can offer to the community by developing the high-speed Internet landscape, in order to make the businesses in our region globally competitive.

With a background in the communications field as a National Sports Commentator with CBC for 28 years, George covered seven Olympics, four World Cup soccer championships and a multitude of other events on regional, national and international proportions. Innovation was key to this role, as this involved “getting the story on the air as quickly as possible using the best technology available in the location we were working.”

What about yourself would surprise most people to learn? I quit school at age 16 to get into the radio and television business and never looked back. 

Your favourite hobby? I love to play golf (I'm naturally competitive by nature).
