PHOENIX, May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Altitude Organic Corporation, (PINKSHEETS: ERBB) a subsidiary of Tranzbyte Corporation, announced today that it has replaced the division's president with a new managing director.

Mr. Boone's track record contains a list of successful turn-arounds in US and Russia. He was selected based on his agility in unpredictable business environments and his ability to conceive and implement bold initiatives. According to Mr. Boone, "I have watched the medical cannabis industry grow a great deal in sophistication and proven medical efficacy over the past several years. I am developing a business model to support this growth by focusing on building our relationships with new and existing dispensaries and bringing new levels of value to the industry. We have laid the groundwork and nurtured a healthy, holistic culture. I believe the company is poised to monetize our expertise and build on its current shareholder value."
Tranzbyte president, David Gwyther concurs, "Altitude Organic needs to focus now on the development of its relationships with dispensaries nationwide. As our relationships with dispensary owners mature, Eric and I believe that Altitude Organic's future lies in involving the company in the creation of value throughout the industry's entire supply chain. Tranzbyte's outside director, Colleen Manley, should also be of great help to us. The contacts she has accumulated from her years as a past (and current) board member of Trans-High Corporation, the publishers of High Times magazine), should help to supercharge Altitude Organix's journey into the brave new world of legal medical cannabis.
