CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 6, 2013) -


Questor Technology Inc. ("Questor" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:QST) is pleased to announce the final director election results from its 2013 annual general meeting of shareholders. All nominees recommended by management were elected for a term ending at the next annual meeting. The detailed results of the vote are:

Nominee Votes in favor
Paul Drager 96.2%
Alison Earl 96.2%
Jim Inkster 96.2%
Audrey Mascarenhas 96.2%
Michael West 96.2%

Questor would like to express its sincere appreciation to retiring Board members Gerald DeSorcy, Alvin Schreiner and Daniel Motyka for their wisdom, guidance and counsel over the past fifteen years. Under their leadership Questor has grown into a strong profitable company and they will certainly be missed.

Mr. Paul Drager, QC, Ms. Allison Earl, CA, and Mr. Michael West have accepted the Corporation's invitations to become members of Questor's Board of Directors.

Mr. Drager is a senior partner at Norton Rose Fulbright and Honorary Consul in Western Canada for the Republic of Kazakhstan. He devotes his practice to matters relating to international trade law, government relations and international resource issues. He is the recipient of numerous awards and has served as a Canadian diplomat in embassies in Moscow and The Hague. Paul will bring his years of global experience to new situations that Questor will face as it grows internationally.

Ms. Earl is the President and CEO of Advantage Tower Ltd. Previously she was CEO and Board Chair for BCT Structures Ltd, and Vice President and CFO at Longbow Capital. Allison has a strong background in accounting, finance, organizational leadership and capital markets which will contribute greatly to Questor's growth profile.

Mr. West was most recently President, Chief Executive Officer and Director of CE Franklin Ltd. Prior to a decade as CEO there, he was Vice President Sales and Operations at National Oilwell. Mike's background in strategic planning, acquisitions and organizational leadership will be important to Questor achieving its planned growth in North America and internationally.

Mr. Inkster continues with the Board, having already provided fifteen years of insight in assisting management in building the firm base on which the Corporation's growth plans will materialize. Ms. Mascarenhas will also continue to serve on the Board.

Questor welcomes the new Board members and eagerly looks forward to engaging their considerable skills and experience in moving the Corporation forward.

Results for all agenda items from the annual general meeting will be posted on SEDAR shortly.
