“The Kraig Labs Board of Directors is being expanded, with three independent directors and with the appointment of Jon Rice, the Company’s COO, to satisfy the governance criteria for listing on a national exchange,” said Chairman and CEO, Kim Thompson. This very positive upgrade in our corporate governance has been part of our growth plan since our last shareholder meeting, in 2019. As the Company grows, so should the level of oversight.”
Thompson continued, “Our first meeting with the expanded board was very productive, including discussions of specific committee appointments. The new members were selected for the unique strengths that each brings to our operations, as we work to significantly expand our production. Our management team is looking forward to the formal appointment of these new members, in the very near future, and I want to thank each of them for their work and enthusiasm.”
