SPRINGVILLE, TN--GroGenesis, Inc., (OTCBB: GROG) ("GroGenesis" or the "Company"), rights holders and manufacturers of AgraBurst, an innovative liquid plant growth enhancement product, is very pleased to announce the appointment of veteran foreign business consultant Manfred G. von Nostitz as the newest member of the company's business development team in the role of Vice President, Asia Pacific.
Mr. von Nostitz has held the position as president with the Asia Pacific Corporate Council based in Kuala Lumpur since 2005. In this role, he regularly advises Western companies on business opportunities in the Asia Pacific region. He brings a broad career spectrum of business and government relations experience derived from over 30 years of work as an advisor, diplomat and corporate director in the region. Formerly the VP of Profound Automotive in Southeast Asia and principal advisor to Southern Bank Group, he enjoys extensive experience with corporate acquisitions, technology transfers, investor relations and merger implementation. With over three decades in the Canadian Foreign service he held the posts of Director General for South and Southeast Asia, the U.N. and Security & Intelligence, and went on to serve as High Commissioner to Malaysia and Brunei and as Ambassador to Pakistan/Afghanistan, Thailand, Laos and Myanmar. Fluent in multiple languages, he holds B.A. degrees in International Economic Relations (University of Grenoble, Stockholm), Arts & Science and an M.A. in Political Science from the University of Toronto.
Company CEO Joe Fewer comments, "We are thrilled to have Mr. von Nostitz join with our growing team. We have determined that the Asia Pacific region holds great promise with its ongoing and relentless demand for increased crop yields. We have already identified a solid business model for the use of AgraBurst on rice and have recently identified a similar and potentially even larger demand in the palm oil segment. Manfred has already introduced the company to several large enterprises who have shown a serious interest in distribution opportunities and are preparing to test our product under scientifically controlled conditions. His keen enthusiasm combined with his extensive regional knowledge and access to key organizations and individuals made his appointment seem a truly natural fit, and one which I am personally grateful he has accepted. I am delighted to welcome him to the Company."
