Gemini Corporation Appoints New CEO

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 29, 2009) - Gemini Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GKX) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Doug Lautermilch as President and CEO.

Mr. Lautermilch is a professional engineer with an MBA and thirty years of increasing responsibility in a number of organizations within the energy industry. He has held a variety of executive management positions over the past 10 years giving him the experience necessary to successfully lead an entrepreneurial organization such as Gemini. His most recent position was as President and CEO of a mid-size oil sands service provider. Prior to that, he participated at the executive level in the growth of two multi-billion dollar organizations involved in oil and gas services and power generation. His knowledge of the service industry from both an engineering and field service perspective aligns well with our organization and will be of significant benefit as Gemini seeks to execute its strategic growth plans.

Mr. Carl Johnson, Gemini's founder and CEO for the past 27 years, will be assuming the position of Executive Chairman to assist in the organization's leadership transition. His background and experience in the industry will provide support to Mr. Lautermilch and the senior management team as they continue to expand the capabilities of the Corporation.

"This is an important step in Gemini's development and I am confident that Doug will guide the organization to new levels of profitability, activity and growth. I am looking forward to working with him through this transition", said Carl Johnson, Gemini's President and CEO. "His technical and business leadership combined with our existing management strength will provide the foundation for successfully growing all of our operations over the coming years."
