Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB:GTSO), an emerging gold exploration company, appointed Paul Watson to the post of President and CEO today.
A seasoned executive, Watson brings a wealth of experience in finance, corporate strategy and management to GTSO. He began his career working with technology start-up companies as an advisor to the Houston Technology Center, developing business plans and raising funds for entrepreneurs and scientists. He then signed on with KPMG’s Corporate Finance team in China. While working in Asian markets, Watson put together growth capital deals ranging from $60-100 million, sourcing funds from strategic and financial investors to expand corporate market share and sales growth. In 2009, Watson founded Hermes Investment Group, a merchant bank serving clients in Asia and North America focusing on emerging clean technology.
Watson will draw upon his impressive background in spearheading GTSO’s gold development initiatives in the emerging markets of Indonesia, West Africa and beyond. GTSO is aggressively targeting gold exploration and development rights around the world as high bullion prices notch record profits for gold producers.
Watson succeeds John Shearer, who will pursue new opportunities.
GTSO plans to service a fast-growing global appetite for rare and precious metals to compete in an exciting sector that includes Yamana Gold Inc. (NYSE: AUY), Newmont Mining Corp. (NYSE: NEM), SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEArca: GLD) and Kinross Gold Corp. (NYSE: KGC).
