Our client, Xplornet Communications Inc. (“Xplornet”), is one of Canada’s leading
broadband service providers. For over a decade, Xplornet has been using its unique wireless
and satellite network to offer Internet access to rural customers across Canada. By focusing
on the customer, Xplornet has gone from a Canadian start up in 2004 to a major player
in Canadian telecom. Every day, over 1,000 Xplornet employees across Canada work to
connect rural Canadians to what matters. With customers and dealers in every province
and territory, Xplornet continues to execute its growth strategy, including launching
Xplore Mobile in late 2018.
Xplornet relies on its legal department to support its growing business groups advising both
on corporate and regulatory matters. It is now looking to fill the position of VP, Legal.
As a leader within the legal team, you will have 3 reports and be part of the Leadership
Team. Your work will include strategizing, negotiating and drafting a variety of complex
commercial agreements, working on M&A and financing transactions, providing legal
support on corporate and regulatory matters, mentoring your reports and setting the budget
for the legal department. This senior position will be located in Markham and report
directly to the Executive Vice President, General Counsel.
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 7 years of commercial experience gained at
a major firm or corporation. Any commercial IT or telecom/wireless/satellite, financing or
regulatory experience will also be seen as an asset. Excellent drafting skills plus an ability
to think logically and to navigate operational challenges will be a must. As well, a business
background or interest in the business side of a corporation will be of interest. Ideally,
