TORONTO, Nov. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com Group Inc. TSX: RDL) ("Redline" or the "Company"), a leading provider of broadband wireless solutions for machine-to-machine (M2M) communications announced today that Eric Melka has resigned from the Company's Board of Directors.
Eric Melka, Redline's CEO since January 2010, has been dealing with a persistent back injury that forced him to take a medical leave of absence as announced on August 8th, 2013 and subsequently to resign as CEO as announced on October 11th, 2013. Mr. Melka indicated that he felt it was in the best interest of the company and shareholders that he resign as his injury is preventing him from being as effective as he would like to be. As such, he will not be returning to Redline from his leave of absence.
"It's impossible to express in a few short words how much Eric has done for Redline, and we are saddened that his tenure as a Board Member and CEO was shortened by his ongoing injury," stated Philippe de Gaspé Beaubien, Redline's board chairman. "On behalf of the entire Board, I want to express our appreciation of his contributions to Redline and the Board. We wish him all the best in returning to full health."
The Board has stated their intention to fill the vacancy on the Board of Directors created by Eric's departure.
