Palladium Energy Announces New Chief Executive Officer

Salyer to Carve Out a Clear Vision for Palladium's Future Growth

NAPERVILLE, IL--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - Palladium Energy, a leading manufacturer of high-performance custom lithium-based battery packs, announced today that Arthur W. Salyer will serve as the company's chief executive officer and president.

Salyer started to work with Palladium as a consultant back in 2009 after the divestiture from Tyco was complete. He was instrumental in developing operations and sales strategies to reposition Palladium in the marketplace. Salyer officially joined the company in December 2009 as vice president of global operations. He was promoted to chief operating officer in early 2010 and then to president in July 2010, where he was responsible for strategically growing the organization and ensuring seamless operations with superior quality outputs throughout the company's worldwide locations. Under his management in 2010, Salyer was able to grow the company by double digits in one short year and position Palladium for stellar growth in 2011 and beyond.

As chief executive officer and president, Salyer will lead, manage and make critical decisions across the entire global business to position Palladium for continued growth. The company's former chairman and chief executive officer, William Atkinson, remains chairman.

"Leading Palladium over the past two years during an extremely tough marketplace has been both a challenging and rewarding experience," said Salyer. "I look forward to aiding our company's growth and expansion in years to come as Palladium continues to be a global leader in providing custom battery pack solutions to the world's largest OEM's and contract manufacturers."

With more than 30 years of direct operations and management expertise across a number of industries, Salyer has worked for companies including Avery Dennison, Carttronics LLC, Frito Lay, Technicolor and Trojan Battery Company.

Salyer received his Bachelor of Science in engineering from California State University Long Beach and his Master of Business Administration from Pepperdine University, The George L. Graziadio School of Business and Management.
