It is an important time in the industry, and I look forward to helping PHT continue its impressive growth."

Mr. Lee said, "The creation of these two executive positions is a milestone in the growth and progress of PHT. Ian's experience and background successfully managing large-scale development initiatives are great assets as we advance the benefits and possibilities of ePRO.
