Busch to the Board of Directors of the Company (the “BOD”) as an independent Director.  Mr. Phil Dyer has submitted his resignation as a Director to devote more time to his other business interests.  Mr. Dyer will continue to serve the Company as an advisor.

Mr. Dyer has served on the BOD since January 2, 2015.  Mr. Dyer’s business and political experience has been instrumental in navigating through the tough economic downswings of 2015, 2016 and 2017, as well as the subsequent turnaround to stronger financial performance in 2018 and 2019.  Over the years Mr. Dyer has served on the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee as well as the Compensation Committee and was Chair of the Audit Committee.  Mr. Dyer has made many contributions to the health and welfare of the stakeholders of Kelso over the past five years.  On behalf of all stakeholders we wish to thank Mr. Dyer for his dedicated service to the Company.

Mr. Busch’s expertise is finance, business development and indigenous relations as Director of Community Engagement with the First Nations Finance Authority in Canada.  Mr. Busch received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Manitoba and has completed five specialized financial certificates from the Canadian Securities Institute and a post-graduate Certificate in Finance from Harvard University in preparation for entering the Masters of Liberal Arts in Extension Studies Field: Finance at Harvard.  Mr. Busch is an expert in the field of Indigenous Engagement and Relations and has spoken publically, published articles and advised companies and organizations of all sizes on the subject.

“I am honored to join the Board of Directors of Kelso Technologies Inc.” says Mr. Busch, “Kelso is a progressive organization with great prospects.  I believe I can add value by helping continue Kelso’s legacy of environmental stewardship and sustainability which aligns well with my values.  Kelso is entering into a new growth stage with its new KXI wilderness technologies which I believe along with the Company’s current rail portfolio will benefit many stakeholders in society.”

James R. Bond, CEO of the Company comments that “Kelso is excited to begin the Company’s transition to the next generation of senior leadership and business direction with the appointment of Mr. Busch.  Much of the Company’s technology development involves specialized equipment used in rail, road and wilderness applications that can better serve and protect the public and the environment.  During the Company’s history Kelso has had a very strong public safety record and have demonstrated the Company’s products do in fact diminish potential negative impacts on the environment.  With the dedicated support of the stakeholders of Kelso, the Senior Management along with the BOD anticipates that we can advance the Company’s technologies in the marketplace which will expand Kelso’s brand to better serve the Company’s customers for years to come.”
