WindTamer Corporation Names William A. Schmitz Chief Executive Officer

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) -  WindTamer Corporation ("WindTamer" or "The Company") (OTCBB: WNDT) announced today that William A. Schmitz has been named Chief Executive Officer, succeeding Company founder Gerald E. Brock. Mr. Schmitz previously served as President of WindTamer Corporation. Mr. Brock will remain both Chairman of the Board and Vice President of Research & Development, where he will focus his efforts on developing new applications of the patented WindTamer turbine technology he invented in such areas as automotive and hydro.

Mr. Brock said, "When Bill Schmitz joined WindTamer as President in November 2009, I said that his appointment as President was the foundation of our transition from a development-stage company to a full-scale manufacturing and sales company. I also said that in such a transition a management team with new skills and background would be required to move the Company forward."

"Since then," Mr. Brock continued, "we have built our management, engineering and sales teams aggressively and WindTamer has grown into an organization with over 20 employees. We are selling and enhancing our products. Given the swift progress of our Company under Bill's guidance over the past four months, we are pleased to have him assume the top management position at this time. Bill's ascension to the role of Chief Executive Officer will now allow him to put his management talents and experience to use more effectively."

Mr. Brock said, "I am pleased that I will also be able to focus on what I do best, which is to further develop our patented wind turbine technology and to apply it in other areas. I believe that the WindTamer technology can be adapted for the hydro-power and automotive markets. My focus now, in addition to continuing to enhance our wind turbines, will be to develop these new products in order to create new avenues of growth for our Company."
