KNOXVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) -  Americas Energy Company-AECo (OTCBB: AENY) announced today that AENY has added Cecil Lewis to their executive team as its Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Mr. Lewis brings AENY more than 30 years of coal industry experience and was most recently employed by Prestige Processing Co. of Manchester, Kentucky.

"The addition of Cecil Lewis to the AENY executive team grants us direct access to the end burner of our coal," said Chris Headrick, President and Co-CEO of Americas Energy Company. Mr. Headrick added, "With the acquisition of the reserves held by Evans Coal Corporation, we realized the need to negotiate directly with our customers. Those negotiations will require experience to properly develop and exploit the incredible resources assembled by the Evan's family over the last 40 years. Cecil brings AENY the depth of experience necessary to facilitate sales, maximize profit and structure the associated logistics required to insure the products delivery.
