OTTAWA, ON -- Xerox Canada Inc. today announced the appointment of Emechete (Eme) Onuoha to director, federal government relations and sustainability.

Mr. Onuoha joined Xerox Canada in 2007 and was promoted to his current position in January 2008, following a 12 year career with the federal government. In his new role, Onuoha will be responsible for coordinating and advancing all aspects of Xerox Canada's sustainability agenda and related stakeholder engagement.

"Xerox's commitment to the environment dates back more than 30 years.

Mr. Onuoha brings significant Canadian and international public policy and legislative experience to his new role.
