NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 6, 2015) - Global Arena Holding, Inc. (the "Company" or "GAH") ( OTC PINK : GAHC ) announced today that the Company's subsidiary, Global Election Services Inc. ("GES"), entered into an independent contractor's agreement with Ralph E. Gerchak -- one of the industry's top labor management consultants, to assist with GES' growth and expansion.

"With 23 years of experience in administering the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959, Mr. Gerchak will bring to GES a wealth of knowledge which I believe, will greatly contribute to our revenue potential," stated Maralin Falik, Chief Executive officer of Global Election Services, Inc. "We are excited to have Ralph come onboard to GES."

Having served in the District of the New York Office of the United States Department of Labor for 15 years, executive management for both GAH and GES, are confident that the Elections business will continue to excel with Ralph Gerchak's guidance.

Mr. Falik concluded, "The decision to go with Ralph Gerchak was a 'no-brainer.' As we accelerate a two decade old profitable business into the greater world of global elections for unions, corporations and international governments -- using cutting edge technologies, there is no one better to have on the GES team than a top rated industry professional like Ralph E. Gerchak."
