Smith, Chairman of the Board of GeoGlobal. "Both Mr. Roy and Mr. Kent have made significant contributions to GeoGlobal and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. I would like to take this opportunity to thank and acknowledge both of them for their contributions to GeoGlobal and recognize that they have been instrumental in the growth of our operations to date."
"I am taking on a new role with GeoGlobal recognizing that Mr. Miller is the right choice to lead us in our next phase of growth" said Mr. Jean Paul Roy. "Mr. Karkera's solid financial, regulatory and public company background and specific experience with GeoGlobal will enable a seamless transition into his expanded role. Both Mr. Miller and Mr. Karkera are extremely capable individuals and I look forward to working closely with them both and watching the Company benefit from their expertise and strategic insight. I believe our company has a strong, dynamic management team in place that will support a growing portfolio of assets".
