Joe Issid, Social Media Breakfast Montreal

Joe Issid is the founder and president of Missid Media Inc, a Montreal-based media and publishing company.

After completing his BA at McGill in the late 1990s, Joe moved to Saudi Arabia to become the youngest Senior Editor at Arab News, the highest-circulating English newspaper in the Middle East. As the tech boom exploded in North America at the turn of the century, Joe returned to Montreal and began a decade-long involvement in local tech start-ups.

During this time, he spearheaded the launch of products in various industries, including Online Transaction Processing, Internet Telephony and Human Resource Management. In 2011, Joe left the start-up world to manage all online infrastructure at video game publishing giant Ubisoft. During his tenure at Ubisoft, his team successfully launched many popular game titles, including The Settlers Online, Imagine Online as well as AAA title Ghost Recon Online.

Missing the exhilaration of working in the start-up world and yearning to return to publishing, Joe left his position at Ubisoft in 2012 and founded theScrib.com, an online humour magazine. He is currently serving as its Managing Editor.

Joe is an accomplished editor and widely published writer; he currently writes a monthly column for Monster.ca and his works have appeared in the Montreal Gazette,Yahoo.com and The Washington Post.
