Markham, September 15, 2017 — Redline Communications Inc. (TSX:RDL) today announced the sudden passing of John R. Wilson on Thursday, Sept 7, 2017. A member of the Redline board of directors since October 2013, Mr. Wilson spent the majority of his career as an executive in the oil and gas industry working for companies such as Haliburton, VeritasDGC, Trade Ranger and Quantapoint. He was most recently the owner/principal of Scorpio Resources, working with companies around the globe.
“Redline has lost a respected leader and a dedicated director, and the Oil and Gas community has truly lost one of its finest contributors,” said Robert Williams, Redline's president and CEO. “John had an uncanny manner about him to break down problems and rationalize solutions. He was never deterred by negative outside forces that could stand in the way of progress. Rather, he followed his convictions and trusted his creativity resulting in positive outcomes in everything he touched. He was truly a people person, teacher, and mentor and he positively changed the lives of the people he worked with. John was a great example of how to balance a successful career with family life. He has a wonderful family including his wife Christine and 6 children. We will all miss him deeply.”
