He has the commitment and skill to lead the board and interact with senior management to guide the future of the Company and increase shareholder value. We are delighted to have him appointed as Chairman of the Board and look forward to working more closely with him. We are confident Mr. Gillett’s experience in the oil and gas industry and his past successes in financing and recapitalization transactions will be beneficial to Select Sands execution of its business strategy as it moves forward.”
