We are also very pleased that Greg McGillis will continue to benefit the Company with his extensive technology, market and customer knowledge, in the role of President and Chief Technology Officer, as well as a director.”
Mr. Carruthers began an ongoing consulting engagement with Titan management in October last year during Titan’s strategic planning exercises. He has a thorough understanding of Titan’s prospects and challenges. Douglas has over forty years of management experience with complex business models. He is a skillful planner, communicator and team motivator. During his career he has held various senior executive positions in public companies and sat on two public company boards. He also worked as sales manager of a large Canadian trading organization, a credit risk analyst with one of the major banks and a business analyst with a venture capital firm.

The team is experienced, resilient, and motivated. Titan’s foundations are solid.” “And of course,” Mr. Carruthers concluded, “I am excited to once again collaborate with Charles to develop and implement a progressive and rewarding business entity.”
