Planet Organic Welcomes New Board Member

Planet Organic Health Corp (POH: TSX V) added a key board member Brent Knudsen to its' team as announced today.

Currently Brent is the managing partner of Partnership Capital Growth Advisors, LLC. He was an original partner in North Castle Partners where he was key in developing EAS which is the leading active nutrition brand in the U.S. In this time he also developed Red Door Spa's and was part of the original aquisition of Naked Juice.

Since 1983 Brent has focused his career in the healthy and active living and aging markets. Brent cut his teeth at Bain and Company working on health care strategy and mergers and acquisitions. This soon led to him serving as the original VP of Marketing and Business development for Price Club and Costco before and after their merger. Within his tenure he witnessed growth from a $20 billion company to the giant it is today at $60 billion. He definitely brings many years of relevant experience and expertise to the board.

Brent was an important part of the process in the financing and acquisition of the retail chain Mrs. Green's for POH and we expect his experience can only help Planet Organic continue to grow.
