"As the many potential health benefits of hemp continue to be revealed through scientific research and development, I believe the Chinese community will embrace this rediscovered ancient remedy. I look forward to creating brand awareness and exposure for the Company's 'OptHemp' product line, developing the Company's network marketing division and generating significant new revenue streams for the Company in the coming year."
Through Mr. Wang's continued leadership as CEO of CIIX, Mr. Gillespie's leadership as the President of ChineseHempOil.com, Inc., and Summer Yun's leadership as the recently appointed CEO of CBD Biotechnology Co., Ltd, the Company hopes to ensure that its core financial services/media division and its newly developed direct-to-consumer division achieve their individual growth objectives set out for the coming year.

"We are excited to name Keevin Gillespie as the President of ChineseHempOil.com, Inc.," says Wang. "I have known Mr. Gillespie for over 20 years. Early on, he worked as Vice President of sales for the Company and was integral in helping me to build CIIX into what it is today. I've known Mr. Gillespie to demonstrate remarkable influence and motivation in his management style, which is why I hand picked him for this leadership position with ChineseHempOil.com, Inc. Mr. Gillespie is also a strong recruiter with extensive sales management experience, and an aptitude for business development. Most importantly, Mr. Gillespie is passionate about our 'OptHemp' product line and about the development of a network marketing division.
