TORONTO, CANADA, June 2, 2014 /FSC/ ‐ Mongolia Growth Group Ltd.
(YAK:TSXV and MNGGF:USA) Mongolia Growth Group Ltd. (“MGG”) or (“the Company”) www.mongoliagrowthgroup.com, a real estate investment and development company pursuing the dynamic growth of the Mongolian economy via ownership of institutional-quality commercial property assets in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, today announced that it has moved its corporate headquarters to Toronto from Thunder Bay, in order to be closer to the financial markets and investors.
Jordan Calonego, a co-founder of Mongolia Growth Group, has informed the Company that he has decided to remain in Thunder Bay and step-down from his managerial duties as the Company’s COO and Corporate Secretary, in order to remain closer to his family and other business interests. Genevieve Walkden, who has been with the Company since 2011, will succeed Mr. Calonego as Corporate Secretary. Mr. Calonego will remain an active board member of MGG.
“During our first trip to Mongolia in the summer of 2010,” said Jordan Calonego, “Harris and I had the vision of creating a company that would allow us to invest our own money in the tremendous growth that will occur in Mongolia over the next few decades. We set out to build a venerable organization that would incorporate best practices in terms of transparency, corporate governance and accountability. Now, having created the framework for success and having hired an exceptional real estate professional and leader, Paul Byrne, we have achieved what we set out to accomplish and my role will transition to that of an active board member.”
“I want to sincerely thank Jordan for his efforts on behalf of our company over the past three years and the many months of work before the Company was founded,” said Harris Kupperman, Executive Chairman of MGG. “We have accomplished much of what we set out to do over the past three years and I am most appreciative that Jordan will remain engaged as an active board member.”
