Protus IP Solutions Co-Founder and CEO, Joseph Nour Earns Business Achievement Award
Ottawa Business Journal's Forty Under 40 Awards honour Ottawa's business elite.

Ottawa, May 10, 2005 - Protus is pleased to announce that Joseph Nour, co-founder and CEO, 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 entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen while at the same time community involvement and contribution.

"I'm pleased to be selected as a recipient of this award," says Joseph Nour. "Receiving this recognition would not have been possible without the continuing hard work and support of our employees who have helped to shape Protus as a progressive market leader."

With his partner (and CTO) Simon Nehme, Joseph anticipated the evolution of an IP messaging market - innovative and inexpensive services - encompassing voice, email and fax messaging that harness the power of the Internet. Protus continues to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in Canada with revenues already exceeding $18 million.

Last year alone, approximately 200,000 Virtual Fax numbers were deployed to users in North America. Protus now serves over 40,000customers 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 accomplishments, professional recognition and community and charitable involvement. The 2004 Forty Under 40 recipients will be feted at a gala reception June 20 at the Ottawa Congress Centre in Ottawa.
