Peterson, P.C., as a new independent member of the Board of Directors. Hon. Peterson is a former federal Cabinet Minister and Secretary of State, with extensive knowledge and first-hand experience legal, financial, board governance and government affairs.
"I want to thank our newest Board Member for taking on the position of Director at Datametrex," said CEO, Marshall Gunter. "His diplomacy and global business acumen are critical assets to better position us in the market, so that we can operate at the highest level in this changing environment. We continue striving for increased collaboration with new consortia in the preventive technologies industries around the world.”
Jim Peterson with his government experience on the world stage brings a wealth of knowledge in strategic planning and government affairs. He will be using this experience in helping Datametrex engage with world governments to bring more testing to the general population to eradicate the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Jim obtained his BA and LLB from Western University, his LLM from Columbia University and his DCL from McGill University. He also taught Law at University of Toronto, and worked for the UN International development organization in Vienna, Khartoum, and Kuala Lumpur on International joint business ventures in developing countries.

While a Cabinet Minister, Jim represented Canada at the World Trade Organization's Doha round of negotiations, which were focused on expanding trade and investment in leading emerging markets Brazil, Russia, India and China, and with complex issues related to trade with Canada's NAFTA partners, the European Union, the Middle East and the Americas.
Jim served as Chair of the House of Commons Finance Committee where he began the practice of public pre-budget hearings and completed several major studies including a review of Canada's value added tax (the GST). He retired from the House of Commons in 2007 after 23 years of public service as the Member of Parliament for Willowdale (Toronto).
"I am a firm believer that time is a resource that companies in high-growth mode cannot afford to waste," Hon. Peterson said. "Datametrex is certainly among those companies. I am honoured to join the Board of this thriving Company; I look forward to further contribute to the strong innovative systems that make a difference in our society."
