Xanofi, Inc Appoints New Board Members

Raleigh, NC | Posted on April 19th, 2011

Dr. Hopfenberg will help expand the science team with an independent, expert perspective on technology. Dr. Hopfenberg earned his doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was named the Camille Dreyfus Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at North Carolina State University. He also served at Head of the Chemical Engineering Department of NCSU and is currently an emeritus professor.

Dick Daugherty provides a wealth and lifetime of business acumen and connections to North Carolina business community. Mr. Daugherty retired from IBM in 1994 after 37 years of service as the Vice President of Worldwide Manufacturing for the PC Company, 22 years of which were spent as the Senior Executive for North Carolina. Mr. Daugherty served as the Executive Director for NC State University Research Corporation, focusing on the development of Centennial Campus from 1995-2001. He has served as trustee on many industry boards including Wachovia Bank, Troxler Electronics and Progress Energy.

"I am delighted to be able to welcome Dr.Hopfenberg and Dick Daughtery to our board of Directors," said Miles Wright, Xanofi CEO. "Both have played leading roles in the science and business communities and are invaluable additions to our team as we continue our efforts to grow the Company."

About Xanofi
Xanofi, a highly innovative startup and spinout company from North Carolina State University, will change the global landscape on how nanofibers are manufactured with a new platform process that is highly efficient and easy to integrate into production environments. Using a patented technique called XanoShear™, the scalable Xanofi process will produce nanofibers at less than half the cost and much higher yields than current methods. According to BCC Research, nanofiber production (any fiber with a diameter smaller than 1,000 nm) is booming, growing at a rate of 34% per year and projected to become a multi-billion industry within the next ten years. This game-changing technology will enable many more industrial and consumer products to reach the market sooner.
