On March 6, 2019, Rob Tarzwell resigned as one of our director’s. Mr. Tarzwell was an “independent director” as defined by Nasdaq Rule 5605(a)(2) and had been a member of our board’s Audit Committee, Nominating Committee, Corporate Governance and Human Resources Committee, Compensation Committee, Enterprise Risk Oversight Committee and Social Media Committee. Mr. Tarzwell’s resignation did not result from any disagreement with us or our management.

 

On March 6, 2019, our board of directors appointed Joanne Yan to be one of our directors, and Ms. Yan accepted the appointment on March 6, 2019. Ms. Yan is an “independent director” as defined by Nasdaq Rule 5605(a)(2). Her appointment to the board was not pursuant to any arrangement or understanding between Ms. Yan and any other person. We have not entered into any compensation arrangement with Ms. Yan for her services as a director.

 

Ms. Yan brings 25-years of experience in advising and managing both publicly traded and private companies. She serves as the President of Joyco Consulting Services, which she founded in 1994 to provide consulting services in the areas of corporate structuring, business development and strategic planning initiatives. She recently established Alphaco Venture Corp., a Capital Pool company listed on the TSXV and she acts as CEO and CFO of the company. Ms. Yan recently led a transaction that enabled an affiliate of Zongshen Industrial Group (“Zongshen”) to acquire a 49% interest in Harbour Air, the largest sea plane operator in North America.

 

Ms. Yan has served on the Board of Directors of several public and private companies, including (i) Zongshen, our strategic manufacturing partner, and three of its subsidiaries, (ii) the TSX listed Hanwei Energy Services Corp., which manufactures and sells high pressure fiberglass reinforced plastic pipes for international oil & gas and infrastructure industries in addition to producing oil & gas in Canada and (iii) Sunshine Oilsands Ltd., a Hong Kong Stock Exchange listed company, where she is also the Audit Committee Chair, and a Corporate Governance Committee member.
