ENTERPRISE CAPE BRETON CORPORATION PAYS TRIBUTE TO IRVING SCHWARTZ

SYDNEY (NS) – SEPTEMBER 20, 2010 – John Lynn, Chief Executive Officer of Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation (ECBC) today paid tribute to well-known Cape Breton entrepreneur and philanthropist, Irving Schwartz who passed away on
September 18, 2010.
 
“Cape Breton Island has not only lost a pillar of its business community but also a true champion of the Island’s people and economic potential,” said Mr. Lynn.  “Through his numerous business, community and international humanitarian endeavours and as a mentor to many aspiring entrepreneurs, his life’s work leaves an indelible mark on the economic and social fabric of Cape Breton Island and Nova Scotia. On behalf of ECBC, I offer my sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.”

“A well respected and successful businessperson and community activist, Mr. Schwartz never lost touch with his Cape Breton roots, “added Mr. Lynn.  “His business acumen was rivaled only by his generosity and commitment to community. A true measure of success is to leave the world a better place, and Irving Schwartz did just that.”  

Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation offers programs in support of economic development initiatives and is responsible for delivering ACOA’s programs on Cape Breton Island and in the Mulgrave area.
