The not-for-profit organization, which brings together the Nova Scotia digital community through networking, conversations and events, was originally incorporated in 1989 as the Software Industry Association of Nova Scotia.
Now with board members from various backgrounds and organizations, the New Glasgow man joins a diverse group and brings decades of digital experience to the table.
"Digital Nova Scotia is extremely pleased to welcome Jim Fitt to our board of directors,” says Ulrike Bahr-Gedalia, president and CEO. “Jim is highly engaged and respected within our industry, and brings with him passion, enthusiasm, and a commitment to strengthen our digital economy. As Digital Nova Scotia looks to increase programs across the province, we are excited to have Jim as a champion, advocate, and adviser."
Fitt is of the only two board appointees to be located from rural Nova Scotia, with most current and past members hailing from the Halifax Regional Municipality.
“The appointment to this dynamic bored is equally exciting and humbling,” said Fitt, whose company is located in downtown New Glasgow. “Digital Nova Scotia has always been a provincial leader and huge supporter in the technology industry. I’m happy to, in a way, be giving back.”
Fitt joins 10 industry leaders who joined the board of directors following the organization’s AGM.
