Who is on the BOD?CEO Kenton Alder has been in the PCB business going back at least to 1987. He is an employee director.Alder is not the Chairman that is held by Robert Klatell. He is upper managment and director of various technical manufacturers - medical equipment, IT, media and communications, and consulted with Arrow electronics (PCB connection and experience?). Presently, he is retired - not getting pad a slary to do work I guess. Has a law degree. Sounds like he might make sense as a chairman for a company like this."Our board of directors has determined that Mr. Klatell is an independent director. Mr. Klatell wasnominated to the board of directors because of his extensive experience with operations management and hisknowledge of corporate governance and global mergers and acquisitions. His membership with the NationalAssociation of Corporate Directors provides him with up to date information on corporate governance best practicesand the tools necessary to bring his leadership to our board of directors. As a result of Mr. Klatell’s significantinvolvement in director professionalism education, Mr. Klatell has been designated an NACD Governance Fellowby the National Association of Corporate Directors. Further, his deep knowledge of the electronics industry anddirect experience in the communications industry allows him to contribute a broad perspective to discussions aboutour future activities and our place in the current competitive landscape."
