TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 15, 2017) - TeraGo Inc. ("TeraGo" or the "Company") (TSX:TGO) (www.terago.ca) announces that the nominees listed in the management information circular for the Company's 2017 Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders (the "Meeting") were each re-elected as directors of TeraGo. Among the directors re-elected, the Company announces Mr. Matthew Gerber as the new Chair of the Board effectively immediately. Mr. Gerber will be replacing Mr. Jim Nikopoulos who did not stand for re-election.

Mr. Gerber joined TeraGo's Board in June 2016 and currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer and a board member at Rohinni LLC, a developer of next generation lighting systems for mobile computing applications. Prior to that, Mr. Gerber held operating or board roles at several significant cloud computing businesses, including: 2nd Watch, one of Amazon Web Services largest global business partners; IT-Lifeline, one of Amazon Web Services first business partners (subsequently acquired by Reynolds & Reynolds); and Blue Box Group, one of the first providers of hosted managed private cloud services on top of OpenStack (subsequently acquired by IBM). Mr. Gerber holds a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and a Master of Business Administration with Distinction from Hofstra University.

Mr. Gerber commented, "I'm excited and thrilled to take on this vital and enhanced role at TeraGo and will look to work with our CEO and Board to lead the Company into the next stage of its strategic growth plan. We were very fortunate to have had Jim Nikopoulos' strong leadership in his capacity as not only Chair of the Board, but also as a director and as part of TeraGo's management team for numerous years. He made significant contributions to the Company and we are greatly appreciative of his hard work through the various roles he has taken on."

Mr. Antonio (Tony) Ciciretto, President and CEO of TeraGo added, "We look forward to Matt's leadership given his highly relevant experiences. We are confident the Board will continue its focus on creating long-term value for both our shareholders and customers under Matt's new role as Chair."
