Ottawa Business Journal's Forty Under 40 Awards honour Ottawa's business elite.

Ottawa, June 7, 2004 - Protus IP Solutions, a high-growth application service provider that offers Internet-based messaging solutions to businesses around the world, is pleased to announce that Simon Nehme, co-founder and CTO, Protus IP Solutions has been recognized by the Ottawa Business Journal as one of the "Forty Under 40" business leaders in Ottawa.

The "Forty Under 40" is an annual listing of Ottawa's business elite under the age of 40. Recipients are honoured for their high level of achievement and demonstration of leadership both inside and outside of the boardroom.

"I'm flattered to be recognized for this award," says Simon Nehme. "As a high growth application service provider, Protus is gaining market momentum as a leader in value-added voice, email and fax messaging services. Being included as one of the 40 recipients is a gratifying and continuing endorsement of our efforts."

Simon is a serial inventor and entrepreneur, and is the technical architect behind the success of Protus - recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in Canada with revenues already exceeding $14 million.

As co-founder and CTO, Simon anticipated the development of an IP messaging market, and created a scalable architecture that continues to deliver new features - encompassing voice, email and fax messaging. Protus now serves over 20,000 customers around the world and is the dominant messaging service provider in Canada.

Recipients of the business achievement award were selected through ratings in three different categories: professional abilities and success, professional recognition and community involvement. The 2004 Forty Under 40 recipients will be feted at a gala reception June 9 in the ballroom of the Fairmont Chateau Laurier in Ottawa.
