Mr. Brad Douville reports


Greenlane Renewables Inc. has appointed Brad Douville, current chief executive officer, to the newly created role of vice-chair of the board of directors, and a continuing full-time executive role as executive vice-chair with a mandate to support management in advancing key strategic initiatives, and has appointed Ian Kane as president and CEO to lead the company's profitable execution of its new strategic plan. Both appointments will be effective Aug. 10, 2023.

"Greenlane has grown rapidly over the past four years, and we are now resetting our strategic plan for the next stage of growth," said Mr. Douville, CEO of Greenlane. "The board has approved our new strategic plan, which foresees Greenlane's further evolution as an industry leader, delivering operational excellence, industry-leading products and strong financial performance. A pillar of this strategic plan is adding a proven leader with experience in creating operating leverage in the environment of rapid growth we've had and expect to see over the next number of years. The executive vice-chair role is full-time and over the next few years my mandate will be to assure that the full potential of the most important strategic opportunities are realized."

"We are pleased to welcome Ian Kane as president and CEO of Greenlane," said Wade Nesmith, chairman of Greenlane. "Ian has a proven track record of successfully transforming companies for growth and profitability. I am also pleased that Brad will be taking on the role of executive vice-chair, focusing on a few of the most lucrative initiatives to propel the company forward. Greenlane's opportunities in Brazil are a prime example, with the huge RNG potential that exists in the large landfill and even larger sugar cane industries. The transition of CEO responsibility to Ian will allow Brad in his new role to build on our historic success in Brazil as well as to advance other vital strategic opportunities. Brad has been instrumental in establishing Greenlane's reputation as a trusted technology provider in the RNG industry and we look forward to his continued drive for success in international markets."

"I'm excited to work with Ian, whose background and experience make him ideally suited to lead Greenlane into its next chapter as a trailblazer in the RNG industry," said Mr. Douville, CEO of Greenlane. "It has been my honour to serve as CEO during these past four years of Greenlane's public company journey, and I want to offer my sincere thanks to our employees whose hard work and dedication have allowed us to accomplish so much. I am looking forward to focusing on the tremendous untapped potential that we see in the global RNG industry as we build on Greenlane's strong foundation."

"I've been fortunate to have a great deal of experience helping companies optimize growth and financial performance after the start-up phase," said Mr. Kane, CEO appointee of Greenlane. "It is a great time to join Greenlane and I'm looking forward to working with the team to achieve their ambitious goals. I believe that Greenlane offers an important path to accelerate the decarbonization of global energy and I'm proud to join its leadership."
