CALGARY, Feb. 19, 2013 /CNW/ - Ridgeline Energy Services Inc.

water treatment and energy technology company, today announces
Management promotions that are part of long-term management development
plans for addressing the growth needs of the Company.
Tony Ker Chief Executive Officer "CEO" of Ridgeline since December 2008 will
become Executive Chairman of the Board, as of today. Tony's responsibilities will be in Board related
activities, strategic planning, investor relations, security
regulations, acquisitions, and concentration on business operations
within Canada. Mr. Ker works in the Vancouver, British Columbia office.
Dennis M. Danzik, current Director and head of engineering and operations since early
2011, will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer, as of today. As the Company moves aggressively into the
Industrial/Commercial water treatment industry and the demand shifts
primarily in U.S. markets. Mr. Danzik carries over thirty years'
experience in engineering design, and has held executive and board
member positions on five public exchanges worldwide. Mr. Danzik works
in the Scottsdale, Arizona offices.
Douglas Johnson remains a Director and will stay with the Ridgeline Board. Mr. Johnson
has served as Ridgeline Chairman for eight years. "All of us wish to
thank Doug for his leadership as Chairman and his continued support as
Director, stated Tony Ker."
Tony Ker new Executive Chairman commented "Mr. Danzik and I have forged
a very strong working relationship over the past four years and I have
high confidence in Dennis's abilities to lead as CEO and Senior Officer
of the Company. Ridgeline is transitioning from an Energy Service
company into a broad based Water Technology company that will span many
industries, now with substantial assets and large footprint throughout
North America. The demand for the Company's water technologies to these
industries requires management changes that will allow the Company to
respond to client needs and rapid growth of the business."
Dennis M. Danzik, CEO commented "Over the last four years, I have
watched Ridgeline grow from a few offices in Canada to operations in
three Canadian Provinces and six U.S. States. The excitement comes from
the solid managerial base that Tony Ker and I have had the pleasure of
building over the last four years. Our management bench is deep, our
opportunities are clearly defined; two critical jobs that are often
ignored, and difficult to accomplish in any business. It is also
important to note that all of our original team is still with the
company after all of this growth. That speaks highly of Tony Ker's
management. Each individual manager at Ridgeline continues to help
shape and grow with the Company, and the senior and seasoned management
of Richard Winterich and Kevin Bridges who joined Ridgeline last year,
rounds out our team. After thirty years of experience, I have learned
that people are the business. The quality of people that we hire, and
in which we empower, and develop opportunities, continue to define
Ridgeline's successful future."
