Nugg has added three new critical members to its team as part of its mission to help companies build better, more successful teams and drive new product expansion.

Vancouver, BC,  October 29, 2014

Nugg has expanded its core team to help deliver our vision of a world where people control the record of their own expertise and can use this record to get on the most compelling projects. Companies will be able to gather these records to quickly bring together teams of the best people from inside and outside their organization.

To lead Nugg’s new product push, Karen Chiang has joined Nugg as VP Business Development. Karen was most recently Managing Director of Pacific Coast Information Systems and was responsible for both business development and client success. She comes to Nugg with decades of experiences building and shaping business development efforts for a wide range of technology companies including Hewlett Packard and a number of Vancouver start-ups.

“I’m thrilled to join Nugg. Imagine being part of a team which lives and breathes the mantra of bettering teams and how each of us needs to contribute to that,” says Karen, “not only is there tremendous depth of talent, the platform we are building is well poised to have real positive impact on how companies and individuals approach building and being part of winning teams.”

Bringing a deep understanding of the enterprise team and consulting space, Charles (Chuck) Hamilton has joined the Nugg Advisory Board. Chuck brings years of consulting and technology experience at IBM to Nugg. He is a thought leader on mentoring, collaboration, and design for performance and has worked with executives around the world to help them step up the level of team performance.

“We are in the midst of a sea change in how project teams are organized and staffed,” Chuck says. “Nugg has a vision for how people are going to be able to take more charge of their careers and companies find the best talent for teams more efficiently.”

To prepare for accelerated growth in 2015 Nugg has also brought in Pieter Dorsman as a financial advisor. Pieter has co-founded, invested in, managed, advised, and exited from a number of Vancouver-based technology companies. Pieter arranged millions of dollars in financing for the companies he has been involved with in the past. Prior to relocating to Vancouver he held a number of senior positions in the project and corporate finance divisions of UBS and Barclays in Hong Kong and London.

“Nugg is entering the market with an interesting technology and has built a solid team around it to execute the plan,” says Pieter, “these people have the vision, talent, and technology to do something amazing in this space.”
