On July 1, 2019, the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) appointed King Fai Leung to serve as a member of the Board and a member of each of the three independent committees of the Board (i.e., the audit committee, compensation committee and nominating and corporate governance committee) and as chairman of the audit committee of the Board, effective immediately.
Mr. Leung, age 47, has over 20 years’ experience in finance and accounting. He has been the executive director of Maxima Energy Limited, an energy company in Hong Kong, since December 2018. Mr. Leung has also served as an independent director since November 2017 and was re-designated in March 2019 as an executive director and Chief Financial Officer of Chineseinvestors.com, Inc., a financial information website for Chinese-speaking investors (OTCQB: CIIX).
