Progressive Planet Solutions Inc. (CVE:PLAN) has announced Monday the appointments of Randy Gue and Chris Halsey-Brand to the company's advisory board.
"These appointments are a continuation of our goal to add significant depth and experience that will expedite the commercial launch of new technologies to reduce the large carbon footprint associated with cement production," said CEO Stephen Harpur in a statement. “Randy and Chris each bring outstanding expertise that will help us guide the Company through its next stage of growth.”
The company said that Gue will advise on introducing Progressive Planet's developing product offerings into the marketplace with the initial focus on markets for PozGlass SCM.
Gue spent 17 years with Lafarge Canada as the director of business development and resource recovery where he led Lafarge's Western North American initiative to reduce variable operating costs by developing business-to-business relationships primarily related to the recovery and reuse of wastes and by-product streams from industries and institutions.
Progressive Planet said that Halsey-Brand will assist in financial analysis of the first PozGlass SCM manufacturing plant and will also assist in evaluating opportunities to grow the company through strategic acquisitions.
Halsey-Brand is both a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and a Chartered Business Valuator (CBV). He currently owns and operates a successful food processing business. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, Halsey-Brand was a partner at Blair Mackay Mynett Valuations Inc, a leading independent firm in Vancouver providing business valuation services.
Progressive Planet is an emerging leader in supplying solutions for a livable planet by developing low carbon, pozzolan-based, cementing products that replace equivalent amounts of Portland Cement and fly ash in concrete. The production of Portland Cement is the second-largest global generator of CO2 emissions.
