In Memoriam: Michael Terni, iGotcha Media
Gail Chiasson, North American Editor
We sadly announce the recent sudden death of Michael Terni, a founding partner and executive vice-president at the growing digital firm iGotcha Media, Montreal.
Terni had been accidentally injured playing hockey while in Las Vegas.“Michael was an intelligent and passionate partner who shared with me a vision for starting iGotcha Media at a point when digital signage was still in its infancy,” says Greg Adelstein, co-founder and president of iGotcha Media. “Michael was instrumental in building the company to where it is today and will be missed tremendously. He was a great friend and human being.”
An engineer, athlete, globetrotter, and proud father, Terni partnered with Adelstein in 2005.
“Michael was intelligent, honest, fair and hard working,” says Adelstein. “He knew when to push and when to pull back in all our business dealings. He was a very savvy guy with great business instincts. Mike wasn’t afraid to bring lessons learned from his past to our office so that we could use his experience to create a successful future for our business.”
Prior to iGotcha, Terni was account manager for American Express worldwide at Melita, a call center software solution provider. He earlier worked in marketing and sales at Locus. He was a graduate of the University of Waterloo.
We offer our sympathy to Terni’s wife Cullen Pilot and young daughter Tatiania, as well as his parents, sister, other family members, friends and colleagues.
