CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y., Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BioHiTech Global, Inc. (OTC: BHTG) (the "Company"), a provider of innovative food waste disposal solutions, announced today the appointment of Brian C. Essman as Chief Financial Officer.

Essman has over 20 years of financial management experience, starting as a CPA with PricewaterhouseCoopers as a senior manager, followed by a CFO role at a Fidelity Capital (the Private equity arm of Fidelity Investments) portfolio company. He has held various executive level positions from 1997 through 2014 at several Havas (HAV.PA) operating companies, including most recently, the CEO of Data Communique, a leading software-as-a-service company providing component content management and multi-channel publishing to the investment management industry where he led the growth in cloud-based revenues, as well as developed the strategy to migrate and restructure the company from a manufacturing and distribution focus to its SaaS focus.

In Brian's CFO roles, he has developed and had oversight of all financial, accounting, treasury, internal controls, reporting, regulatory and risk areas, as well as all areas of mergers and acquisitions. His broad range of financial, operational and strategic roles at SMB companies that are part of much larger structured companies is well suited to aid in BioHiTech's growth as a public company.

We believe his broad based experience in technology and growth companies will be instrumental as we continue to focus on offering our customers more cost-effective and technologically innovative solutions compared to traditional food waste disposal with our Eco-Safe Digester and BioHiTech Cloud™ products."

"With its products now in more than 300 locations across the globe, as well as its expansion of operations to London and recently becoming a public company, I am excited about being part of this green technology revolution and I look forward to joining this talented team and contributing to the company's next phase of growth."
