"In our earnings call last Thursday, we discussed our commercial accomplishments cast in the structure of our new commercial verticals of Structural/Cities, Food Production, Storage, and Animal Facilities. We introduced this strategy as a prelude to our addition of Ed Albe to our team," commented Dr. Loretta Mayer, CEO and co-founder of SenesTech. "Ed officially joined our team last January. In the past 90 days we have worked together to provide Ed with insight into our company with an immersion strategy of detailed company history and performance, criss-crossing the US from New York to California meeting our major customers and hearing their 'voice,' culminating with a Board-approved commercialization strategy for 2019 and beyond. It is with confidence and excitement that we hand the reins of commercialization (Marketing, Sales, Manufacturing and Distribution) to Ed for a bountiful future."

Ed is a high technology industry veteran with an impressive track record of bringing innovative, often esoteric, products to market. He has provided the commercialization and go-to-market strategy for startups, as well as nascent companies introducing novel products to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, specialty chemical, and photonics marketplaces. He is especially adept at turning around underperforming marketing and sales assets to accelerate the time to profitable revenue. Ed received his MBA from Denver's Regis University and is generally regarded within high technology as a lean startup expert.

"I'm delighted that Dr. Mayer and Dr. Dyer, the co-founders of SenesTech, asked me to join their team! SenesTech, and it's flagship product ContraPest®, are poised to dramatically enhance next generation integrated pest management (IPM) protocols. I am especially pleased to join a company that has created a fertility control product for rats which does not have the deleterious impact on our ecology as rodenticides. SenesTech's innovative culture and raison d'être had me instantly," commented Ed Albe.

Drs. Cheryl Dyer and Loretta Mayer, co-founders, responded, "Welcome aboard, Ed."

About SenesTech 

SenesTech is changing the paradigm of pest management by targeting the root cause of the problem: reproduction.

ContraPest® is an innovative technology with an approach that targets the reproductive capabilities of both sexes in rat populations, inducing egg loss in female rats and impairing sperm development in males. Using a proprietary bait delivery method, ContraPest® is dispensed in a highly palatable liquid formulation that promotes sustained consumption by rat communities. ContraPest® is designed, formulated and dispensed to be low hazard for handlers and non-target species such as wildlife, livestock and pets, where the active ingredients break down rapidly.

We believe ContraPest® will establish a new paradigm in rodent control, resulting in a decreased reliance on lethal options. For more information visit the SenesTech website at www.senestech.com.
