CBC's Dragons' Den: Brett Wilson out, Lavalife's Bruce Croxon in
I wasn't happy when I read that my favorite Dragon on Dragons' Den pretty much got the heave-ho from the CBC.
Saskatchewan's W. Brett Wilson is out and Lavalife's Bruce Croxon is in. Lavalife? Being an American, I'd never heard of the company, and thought it had something to do with volcanoes or people with a penchant for Lava brand hand cleaner.
Turns out that Lavalife is an online and interactive voice response-based interactive personals service founded by four entrepreneurs. One of them is Bruce Croxon, the newest Dragon. According to his bio on DC NetCast, where Croxon is on the Board of Directors, he's the former Chairman and CEO of Lavalife Inc. (now Lavalife Corp). Croxon received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Western Ontario in London.
You can read more about the newest member of the popular TV show team on the Dragons' Den Blog and Brett Wilson's response to the change on his personal blog.
I'm sorry to see Brett go, but I'll continue to follow him on Twitter (@WBrettWilson). And as far as me and Dragons' Den? I'm in!
