Eugene Science Appoints Veteran Life Sciences Sales Executive Andrew Altman to Vice President - Business Development

LOS ANGELES, CA | Posted on November 15th, 2007

Mr. Altman brings a 20-year successful track record as a senior sales and sales management executive in the life sciences industry including positions at Varian, Fisions Instruments and Beckman Instruments. Most recently, he served as principal and senior business consultant at Single Track Investments, where he specialized in strategic business development for emerging-growth stage life sciences and pharmaceutical companies seeking to identify and open new markets and establish marketing alliances.

At Eugene Science, Mr. Altman will be responsible for establishing strategic alliances and opening national sales accounts for the Company's patented cholesterol lowering CholZero (CZ™) plant sterol product. He will be targeting companies in the food, supplement and nutraceutical industries. Mr. Altman will also develop existing strategic relationships such as Archer Daniels Midland. Additionally, he will direct the global sales, licensing or partnership strategy for the Company's emerging technologies, including its patented AD/ADD biotechnology process presently being readied for development toward commercialization in 2008.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr. Altman said, "This is an exciting and pivotal time at Eugene Science as the plant sterol marketplace is beginning to reach a critical mass of consumer awareness and demand. Sterols are promoted for their cholesterol lowering benefit, helped indirectly by the multi-billion dollar success of the cholesterol lowering class of pharmaceutical drugs. With the industry's premier, nano-sized water-dispersible sterol product, I believe Eugene Science is ideally positioned to leverage its product advantage in the large and growing global sterol marketplace."

"Andy is the ideal sales professional and strategic level dealmaker, having built and led a number of emergent medical technologies from early stage to market leadership," said Seung Kwon Noh, Eugene Science Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are delighted to have him on board and expect he will advance U.S. sales substantially."

Prior to Single Track Investments in 2005, Mr. Altman worked for Palo Alto-based Varian for ten years where he served as North American Sales Manager and Global Market Manager for that firm's imaging equipment. Previously, he was with Fisions Instruments (formerly VG Instruments) for eight years where he served as Western U.S. Sales and Service Manager. He began his life sciences career with Beckman Instruments, and earned his B.S. in chemistry at U.C. San Diego.
