IBN Welcomes Seamus Byrne as Its Canadian Director of Business Development and Partnerships

IBN, a multifaceted financial news and publishing company for private and public entities, is pleased to announce that Seamus Byrne, a highly accomplished business strategy professional based in New Brunswick, Canada, has joined IBN as its Canadian Director of Business Development and Partnerships. Byrne’s three decades of successful capital market experience in corporate development and investor relations, in both the private and public sectors, will be an asset to both IBN and its growing list of client partners.

“I look forward to working closely with Matt Ernst, Director of Corporate Sales, and the entire IBN team, especially since IBN was the driving force behind the marketing successes of several companies that I helped take public,” said Byrne. “I’m confident that I can add value to the IBN team. My intention is to leverage my network of contacts in various sectors of the capital markets plus form new business relationships that augment IBN’s reach and impact in North America.” 

Byrne previously led the development and operations of several different organizations and has raised over CAD$100 million, and driven market capitalizations for public companies worth more than CAD$2 billion. He has participated in financing and IPOs for numerous cannabis companies including The Green Organic Dutchman, Organigram, Emblem, Plus Products and Hemp Fusion. Byrne earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and international development studies from Dalhousie University.
