Denis Choquette Appointed Director
Denis Choquette has been appointed as a director.
Denis Choquette has twenty-five years’ experience in the high technology, industrial and finance business, including tenures at IBM, AT&T and Bombardier. Before founding GTR Capital, he was as Vice President and General Manager at Bombardier where he formed a very successful high technology finance division. He was on the ground floor of iStar which went public and became Canada’s largest Internet and e-commerce provider. As a founding partner of GTR Capital, Mr. Choquette has provided mergers and acquisitions services to its clients throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Mr. Choquette also has a leading role in strategy & business development at Fayolle Canada Inc. which is one of the fastest growing construction companies in Canada.
“I am very pleased to have Denis join the Elcora team at this critical point in Elcora’s growth” said Troy Grant, CEO of Elcora. “His skills will be invaluable as we begin forging relationships with graphite and graphene end-users.”
Since 2011 Mr. Choquette has been active in the re-opening and management of the Sakura Graphite mine (”Sakura”) in Sri Lanka. His knowledge of the graphite industry was essential both in raising equity for the mine and assisting in re-establishing the extraction of graphite mineralization from the mine. He contributed significantly to the joint business operation between Sakura and Elcora Resources Corp in 2014, particularly with strategy and partnership management.
”The combination of the high quality graphite mineralization available at Sakura and the processing potential of Elcora should prove an effective business model. I look forward to Elcora maturing into an efficient mine and mill operator, and growing to become both a valued and a valuable participant in the expanding graphite industry” said Mr. Choquette.
