Seasoned Public Company CFO With Financial and Cross Border Listing Experience to Join Management Team
QUÉBEC CITY, Dec. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ - TSO3 Inc. (TSX: TOS), an innovator in sterilization technology for medical devices in healthcare settings, has appointed Glen Kayll as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Kayll succeeds Ms. Éléna Simard-Veilleux, who had been acting as interim CFO and has been appointed to the new position of vice president of finance.
Mr. Kayll brings to TSO3 more than 20 years of senior management experience, including as CFO and head of operations for both Canadian and U.S. public companies listed on the TSX and NASDAQ exchanges. He has lead large teams through significant corporate transactions, including more than $4 billion in mergers and acquisitions, financings and other transactions during his career.
Mr. Kayll was previously CFO of Argex Titanium, a TSX-traded, development-stage producer of high grade titanium dioxide (TiO2), which during his tenure secured a major partnership with the third largest chemical distributor in the world. Earlier he served as CFO and vice president of international operations for Coastal Contacts, a TSX and NASDAQ-listed, vertically integrated multinational manufacturer and internet retailer. Before Coastal, he was treasurer and head of investor relations at PMC-Sierra, a NASDAQ-listed, semiconductor and software solutions innovator which later became an S&P 500 component company.

(Ric) Rumble. "He brings a 20-year track record of increasing shareholder value in technology and manufacturing industries with significant operating and capital markets experience in high-growth multinational businesses.

"TSO3 is embarking on the next phase of its growth cycle with the commercial rollout of their revolutionary STERIZONE® VP4 Sterilizer," said Mr. Kayll. "The recently announced exclusive global distribution agreement with Getinge Infection Control is validation of TSO3's sterilization technology and also demonstrates Getinge's substantial financial commitment over the next five years. The unique opportunity to be part of an organization that is improving the standard of patient care worldwide combines my personal interests with my professional experience and I look forward to joining the TSO3 team."
