Mr. Moallem joins Messrs. Lorne Gertner, Hon. Jim Peterson, Maria Consuelo Araujo and Jonathan Goldman on the International Advisory Board.
“Terrace Global has taken a unique approach to the development of its business.

These companies have found a way to work together to leverage each other’s expertise and advantages. I am excited to be a part of the Company and look forward to seeing it grow into a future global leader in the industry.”
