VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/14 -- LX Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LXV) ("LXV" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Bernd Petak has assumed the role of COO of LXV portfolio company Copper.io effective immediately. Bernd Petak is a Vancouver, B.C., based entrepreneur, mentor, technology executive and investment professional.

"Bernd is an experienced technology company operator and his assistance is highly beneficial as Copper grows quickly from its current base of 21 team members."

Bernd Petak, COO of Copper.io, said, "Part of our promise to the Copper team at the time of our acquisition was to quickly enhance its management team with the capacity required to grow quickly, while continuing to provide the amazing service that Copper customers have grown to expect. I'm extremely happy to join Ed Byrne and the Copper team and to be able to focus on the opportunity that the incredible growth the cloud computing space affords."
