IGEN Networks engages new Director and Chairman of the Board


LAS VEGAS, July 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Mr. Monty Ormsby reports:

IGEN Networks Corp. is pleased to announce that the Company has engaged the services of Robert B. Nealon, Esq. as a new Director and Board Chairman of the Company. Mr. Nealon is the Principal Attorney in Nealon & Associates, P.C., a Washington, D.C. based law and government relations firm. He has been practicing law for twenty-seven years and has achieved an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the leading rating bureau for the legal profession. Mr. Nealon has a B.A. from University of Rochester (1977) and M.B.A. from Rochester Institute of Technology (1978). He received his Juris Doctorate, magna cum laude, from the University of Bridgeport in 1982 and his Masters of Law in Taxation (L.L.M.) degree from Georgetown University in 1984. He is a member of the bar associations of New York State and Virginia, the American Bar Association and the Federal Bar Association. Mr. Nealon served as Adjunct Instructor of Corporate Law, George Washington University from 1985 until 2005.

Mr. Nealon has been lead counsel on hundreds of commercial trials, including multi-million dollar derivative action lawsuits, security fraud and government contract fraud. He has been counsel to hundreds of corporations, including insurance affinity marketing, manufacturing and multiple financial institutions. Mr. Nealon has been active over the years in national politics and government relations.

Mr. Nealon was appointed to the Virginia Small Business Advisory Board by former Virginia Governor Warner and has been reappointed to this state board by Governor Kaine through 2010 as its Chairman. Mr. Nealon is also a current appointee to the George Mason University Advisory Board for the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution in Arlington, Virginia. He currently sits on the Board of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce Small Business Committee and is a Director of the Alexandria Small Business Development Corporation. He is also an active member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Democratic National Club.

The U.S. government has made a significant commitment to extend broadband Internet to remote areas, in both the U.S. and abroad. The $7.2 billion plan in the last stimulus package was approved without significant debate. The program is intended to extend broadband service to what is known as the "middle mile," which can connect to institutions like schools and hospitals, and the "last mile" - homes and businesses - that big Internet providers have bypassed because the expected revenue was too small to justify the big investments needed.

IGEN Networks is in the business of providing high-speed Internet, Phone and Data services to rural communities in trade areas up to a radius of 30 miles from the main broadband connections, at a fraction of the cost of competing technologies. IGEN's licensed technology, developed by Machlink, uses near line-of-sight radio in the UHF band to deliver signals from the Company's radio masts to customer premises.

Robert Nealon's selection as Board Chairman is a significant development in IGEN Networks' commitment to becoming a world leader in rural broadband communications.
