"Resolute is fortunate to work with these experienced, talented and driven management team members, some of whom had been part of our team for years at prior companies," said Nicholas J.

We are certain these individuals will continue to be instrumental in supporting our organic growth initiatives and in helping us identify attractive opportunities to further expand our operations. We look forward to their continued progress."

In addition to these promotions, Resolute also announced today that two of the Company's founders, Janet W. Pasque and Dale E. Cantwell, will resign as full time employees effective May 31, 2010 to pursue personal interests. Both Ms. Pasque and Mr. Cantwell will enter into consulting agreements with Resolute.

Sutton added, "It's been such a pleasure to work alongside both Janet and Dale from the very first day Resolute was founded. They have been instrumental in our success and I believe that without their dedication, hard work and diligence we would not be where we are today. We appreciate their willingness to remain firmly engaged during a transition period, and we wish them all the best as they pursue their personal goals."
