John Furlong joins Vancouver gold mining company
Furlong is also chair of Own the Podium and Rocky Mountaineer.
"We believe that his range of experiences as a leader in the private and public sectors, in Canada and abroad, will prove to be a major asset for Arian as it continues to expand its exploration activities," said Arian CEO Zahir Dhanani.
Arian, based out of West Hastings in Vancouver, is reportedly exploring for gold in Albania under its "flagship Kacinar Project". The company announced it had obtained a gold exploration permit for Albania the same day it announced the former Olympic hefe was joining the company.
It's the first business-only news surrounding Furlong in some time. He's still dealing with an article in the Georgia Straight newspaper, which alleged he had abused children at a school he taught at in Burns Lake, B.C.
Also, Furlong's wife, Deborah Sharp, died in a car accident this year, on April 11.
