Altair Nanotechnologies Names John Fallini CFO

RENO, NV | Posted on April 9th, 2008

In his new position, Mr. Dickinson will be responsible for assuring that key development and business programs and strategy are properly implemented and executed and meet the standards and expectations set by the company and its customers.

"Ed Dickinson has been with the company since 1996. His broad experience, knowledge and contacts are invaluable to the continued growth and success of Altairnano, and I am pleased to have him continue in this important new role," said Terry Copeland, the company's interim president.

Mr. Fallini joins Altairnano from Alloptic, Inc., a producer of passive optical network access equipment for the telecommunications industry, where he served as chief financial officer. Prior to his tenure at Alloptic, Mr. Fallini held management positions at three technology companies, including Pacific Bell, where he held various executive and management positions between 1976 and 1998. From 1998 to 2000, he was the chief operating officer at Butterfield & Butterfield, the then privately owned auction house, during its proposed IPO filing and subsequent sale to eBay for $260 million in 1999.

"As Altairnano transitions from technology and product development to manufacturing, we are fortunate to have a CFO whose background includes not only finance, but the administrative and infrastructure functions that enable management to more effectively manage the transition.

"John has extensive experience with companies that have developed sophisticated technology into marketable products for a range of customers," Mr. Copeland continued. "This will become increasingly important for Altairnano as new applications for our core technology are developed and relationships with customers take on increased importance to our success.

"John has repeatedly worked through issues of product pricing, customer contract costing, financial risk and cash management that are critical to any company, but particularly one like Altairnano as it continues to move from a development and design environment to manufacturing. I am very pleased that he has accepted our offer to become CFO."

Mr. Fallini graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering and applied science from UCLA, and earned an MBA in finance from Oklahoma City University, where he graduated with high honors. He is a member of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) and an IMA Certified Management Accountant.
