On April 12, 2022, the company announced that Rick Purdy will become the President of Emergence Global Enterprises. In his role, Rick will oversee the day-to-day direction of the company, focusing on our emerging technologies and business in Western Canada.

In total, the Company has issued 15,000,000 shares to its Management Team that will vest over the next 12 months and are subject to customary terms and conditions of employment.

Mr. Rick Purdy, age 46, has been President of J-CAL Investments, an Alberta-based investment corporation that has developed and grown multiple companies from concept to commercialization. Rick is also involved with real estate development, oil, and gas environmental technologies, and nutraceutical natural health products.
