Businessman dans l'industrie informatique aux États-Unis et au Canada.

An accomplished bass-baritone, Garo Nichanian was born into a musical Armenian family. With his father, a sharaganaked (hymnologist) archpriest, as his first music teacher, he was influenced by the rare richness of the centuries-old traditional Armenian Church music.
Mr. Nichanian studied under the well-known Italian voice professor Lina Narducci. His naturally rich, robust voice has been mesmerizing audiences in major concert halls in Canada and the U.S. for many years with a vast repertoire of operatic arias, patriotic songs and romantic melodies in several languages. Concertgoers have also applauded his deeply resonant voice in solo recitals in Yerevan (1997, 2003 and 2005), in Paris (1999) and in Milan (2004).
Mr. Nichanian also has two recordings to his credit: "Andouni" and a CD entitled “That’s Life” which showcases his talents through international classics and Armenian selections.
Mr. Nichanian was the founding artistic director of the Friends of Armenian Culture which organized 23 classical concerts during 5 seasons (2000-2005) for the benefit of the Bolsahay Foundation. In 2001, Montreal’s Armenian Community celebrated the 1700th anniversary of Christianity in Armenia by presenting “The Birth of David of Sassoun”, a concert oratorio by Garbis Aprikian. Besides being one of the soloists, Mr. Nichanian was also the key coordinator/negotiator with the FACE Orchestra, Le Chœur de l’UQAM and the Armenian Community Choir. In March 2007, Garo Nichanian as Artistic Director, conceptualized and realized an unprecedented concert dedicated to mark the centennial of AGBU in Montreal, in which the FACE Symphony Orchestra played and accompanied soloists, in Armenian popular orchestral, vocal and choir works.
Mr. Nichanian is also a successful businessman and community leader. Among his successes in business: founder and CEO of Dataworld Inc.; founding member of the Canadian Armenian Business Council and serving on the Board of Directors for 7 years, including 2 years as President; member of the Montreal Executive Association for a period of 21 years and serving on the Board of Directors for 2 years. Mr. Nichanian has also used his many organisational talents to chair or be the driving force in several major events in Montreal, including: a founding member of the KAYANE FOUNDATION; Vice-Chairman of the Friends of the Armenian Embassy; Chairman of the Charles Aznavour Tribute Committee; Chairman of the Banquet in Honour of H.H. Karekin I, Catholicos of All-Armenians; Chairman of the Organizing Committee for the celebrations of the 5th Anniversary of Independence of Armenia; Chairman of the organizing committee for the 1999 World Reunion of Armenian Schools of Egypt; chairing (1999-2005) the Investment Committee of the Reunion to oversee the renovations of the high school of Gladzor village and Bridge of Hope Headquarters for handicapped children in Armenia. Since 2000, he organized and chaired several events by ensembles/groups invited from Armenia to perform in Montreal.

Commentaire :

Just over forty years ago Garo Nichanian made the decision to start his own business and he never looked back. Born in Egypt to parents who survived the Armenian Genocide he immigrated to Canada as a young man and grew to become a successful Canadian entrepreneur in one of the most competitive fields in business: Information Technology. This is the story of his life, full of challenges, success, and accomplishments.

A story filled with personal experiences and facts based on situations that may help anyone with ambition to progress their careers to reach self-actualization, or to find their place in the world. As a graduate of Electro-Technical Italian College "Istituto Salesiano", and after spending several years as a field engineer for pre-computer era data-processing equipment, Garo ventured into a sales position which eventually lead him to achieve the status as a top salesman in both Canada and the United States. These accomplishments helped him reach higher management positions in evolving high-tech IT businesses like Canadian General Electric, Honeywell Information Systems, Xerox of Canada among others. The diversity of the corporate cultures at each of the aforementioned establishments was the best management experience he could have ever acquired. It changed him and dared him to accomplish future endeavours with courage and success. In this book he wants to encourage others by sharing his experiences.

This book is a compelling autobiography that will appeal to anyone with an interest in Canadian success stories, the history of the high-tech IT business, travel, arts and culture. Readers will also learn about the Armenian genocide, the collapse of the Kingdom Egypt, the Quiet Revolution in Quebec, and how the technology industry developed from the 1960's through to the present day. As an accomplished bass-baritone and a cultural promoter/ambassador, Garo also provides insight into the classical singing world, along with anecdotes that shed light on the cultural and political climate experienced during this lifetime.
