In joining Garmatex, Mr. Sheridan builds on an illustrious 30-year+ career  as

leadership roles at industry bellwethers such as:

fabric engineers but I have never seen a more promising and innovative  fabric 
technology platform than that of Garmatex's. It is truly disruptive and offers
endless opportunities to build dominant positions in the majority of the major
textile segments. This starts, for me, with the performance apparel  segment, 
where I believe Garmatex  has already developed  the best-engineered array  of 
fabrics currently available in the world, which can transform the capabilities
of the leading retail brands  and lift the entire industry  to a new level  of

chain, together with a demeanor and approach that would meld with our cohesive
and forward-thinking senior executive  team. We are  fortunate to have  found 
that person in Douglas Sheridan. Not only have we given him the reins of  our 
entire Finished Goods business,  he immediately becomes  a key contributor  to 
our corporate strategy  and international  business development  initiatives. 
Douglas is a  proven winner and  will offer immeasurable  help to Garmatex  on
