I suppose Amcol will either need to replace this person, or perhaps they already have. I thought it was interesting that the announcement from Nanophase sounded more like an Amcol promo than one for Nanophase. I should really call Amcol and see if they are doing anything with Nanocor.
Romeoville, IL, - December 4, 2012- Nanophase Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: NANX), a technology leader in nanomaterials and advanced nanoengineered products, today announced that Kevin Cureton has joined Nanophase as its Vice President - Sales, Marketing and Business Development.
Nanophase CEO and President Jess Jankowski commented, "I'm delighted to announce that Kevin has agreed to join our team, leading our sales, marketing, and business development efforts. Kevin brings extensive industry experience and a track record of success in building sales organizations, including significant experience in business development and operational executive management roles within AMCOL. This included eight years as a hands-on Managing Director building AMCOL's nanomaterial-based Health & Beauty Solutions division from a technology-driven start-up occupying a few cubicles, to a profitable business with more than sixty employees. He has also worked in several sales and technology development roles within the chemical industry, along with founding two companies on his own. Kevin brings a high degree of energy, creativity, leadership and business judgment to our organization. We are on a positive trajectory today, with three consecutive years of revenue growth from 2009 through our projected 2012 revenue estimate. I look forward to partnering with Kevin, and believe his addition to the team will accelerate the pace and help us to achieve breakout levels of performance."
