Progressive Planet Solutions Inc (CVE:PLAN) said it has appointed Scott Jenkins as an independent member of its board of directors and a member of its audit committee with immediate effect.
Jenkins currently serves as president and chief executive of ZS2 Technologies and was previously the president of DIRTT Environmental Solutions, a TSX listed company that saw its annual revenues grow from $20 million to $297 million during his time there.
In a statement, Steve Harpur, chief executive of Progressive Planet commented: "Scott brings both private and public company experience to PLAN and understands the effort required to bring new products to the marketplace. Further, his experience and strategic relationships in the construction industry will benefit PLAN as we continue our efforts to introduce a competitive product to fly ash using our natural pozzolan assets to replace carbon-intensive ingredients used in the production of Portland Cement."
Progressive Planet is focused on developing low carbon, pozzolan-based, cementing products to replace equivalent amounts of Portland Cement, the production of which is one of the second-largest global generators of carbon dioxide emissions, and fly ash in concrete.
