The NTN Canada team is proud of our CEO, Mr. Paul Meo for his work with the Mississauga Economic Recovery Group (#MERG). Under the leadership of the Mississauga Board of Trade, MERG has been formed with the vision of "Business United For a Thriving Mississauga". Mr. Meo has joined a group of 7 CEOs who have assembled to bring action to economic recovery to help Mississauga businesses impacted by COVID-19. Mr. Meo will serve as the sector leader for the advanced and traditional manufacturing segment to spearhead actions and advocacy working with the City of Mississauga, the Region, as well as the Provincial and Federal Governments.

  This group of senior business leaders from various sectors of the Mississauga business community will explore the impacts of COVID-19 on the various sectors and more importantly, develop recommendations to help mitigate and reverse the effects. With a sense of urgency, MERG was formed in April 2020 to spearhead powerful actions to help companies recover and exceed pre-COVID measures. Some of these initiatives include the creation of new talent pools and alternative access points to capital and a wide range of collaboration opportunities to help reduce costs and even serve as a recovery model for every City across Canada. A huge thanks to the MBOT and its sector leaders for stepping up!
