Mr. Pang, Managing Director and owner of Ark Infrastructure Solutions Inc., joins Seven Seas Water after his seven year role as Kharafi National Company's Infrastructure Project Development Division's Chief Development Officer.  He was responsible for managing a Team of project developers during the implementation of selective BOT/BOO/PPP infrastructure projects in the Middle East and North Africa region.  He was also the Corporate Business Development Division's Chief Development Officer managing the sales and marketing of all Kharafi National's business lines in the MENA Region, focusing on Kuwait, UAE, Oman, Egypt, Southern Iraq and Saudi Arabia. 

Previously, he was Vice President and Global Water Scarcity Business Development Leader for GE Infrastructure Water & Process Technologies.  Mr. Pang had a successful career working for 24 years with Ionics, Incorporated, before its sale to GE in 2005.  He held various senior executive management roles with Ionics, most recently Vice President of Global Business Development. 

With Ionics, Mr. Pang was one of the water industry's early leaders in promoting the Public-Private Partnership concept for desalination projects.  He led the development of such milestone projects as the 375,000 m3/day (99 MGD) Sulaibiya Water Reclamation Project in Kuwait and the 200,000 m3/day (53 MGD) Hamma Seawater Desalination Project for the City of Algiers.  Both projects were developed under long-term BOOT (Build-Own-Operate-Transfer) contracts.  During his career, he served on the Board of Directors of the International Desalination Association and on the Boards of Ionics investment projects and subsidiaries in Japan, Italy, UK, Spain, China, Singapore and the United States.

John Curtis, Seven Seas Water's President & CEO, said, "Mr. Pang's experience executing on the successful development of major water infrastructure projects brings significant value to the Seven Seas Water team.  He has over 35 years of technical and commercial water treatment experience and has an extensive background in global infrastructure project development.  This knowledge correlates well with our build-own-operate business model for water services.   Mr. Pang's strategic skills in global business development are precisely the expertise we were looking for to support our international growth initiatives."
