Ottawa, Canada - April 25, 2005

OZ Optics’ president and CEO, Omur Sezerman, has been awarded the top prize in the leadership category for Eastern Ontario at the 7th annual Global Traders Awards ceremony in Cornwall on April 21st. Zahide Sezerman accepted the award on behalf of her husband, who was working abroad at the time.

The award was given by Parliamentary Assistant Richard Patten, who made the presentation on behalf of the Minister of Economic Development and Trade, Joseph Cordiano. Mr. Patten praised the hard work of the province’s exporters, who bring innovative products and services to the rest of the world.

The Global Traders awards recognize small and medium sized exporters, business leaders, and students, whose drive and innovation benefit the local export markets, which account for nearly 45% of Ontario’s GDP, and up to 1 million jobs. The leadership category acknowledges individuals who have contributed to the expansion of Ontarian exports. This requires a commitment to developing export markets through involvement with industry and trade related organizations, networks, and educational institutions.

The Global Traders Awards are organized by Ontario Exports Inc., which is the export development agency for the Government of Ontario.
