TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 -- Primus Telecommunications Canada Inc., the country's largest alternative telecommunications service provider, is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Nowlan as Chief Executive Officer and as a member of its board of directors.

Nowlan joins Primus from high-growth social media leader Marketwired as the Canadian telecommunications sector continues to experience significant change from competition, evolving technologies and increasing demand for world-class connectivity and customer service.

"I am thrilled to join Primus at this very exciting time," says Nowlan.
