Amergence Group's Strategic Partner, Altitude Organic™, Hires Executive Vice-President Mario Avansino

DENVER, CO and HONG KONG and PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) -  The Amergence Group's (PINKSHEETS: AMNG) strategic partner, Altitude Organic Licensing Corporation (AO), is pleased to announce it has hired its executive vice president. Mario Avansino was the founder and principal owner of the National Medical Marijuana Association (NMMA) prior to joining Altitude Organic™. 

According to AO president, Brian Cook, "Mario understands the critical importance of medical marijuana patient advocacy. He developed the "I'm a Patient" public awareness television campaign and sold corporate sponsorships to numerous dispensaries around Denver, Colorado."

Mario Avansino stated, "I'm very excited to have the opportunity to join Altitude Organic Licensing Corporation and I eagerly anticipate the broadcasting of our 'I'm a Patient' TV commercial campaign in new markets around the country. Previous airings of our commercial have sparked dialogue and helped to change people's perception surrounding the palliative uses of medical marijuana. I believe there is no better way to fortify positive medical marijuana industry awareness and, at the same time, introduce the Altitude Organics™ brand to the public."
