Mr. Storseth is a businessman and was a Member of Parliament (MP) in Canada for 9 years from 2006 to 2015 - he did not seek re-election in 2016.

"I am excited to be taking an expanded, hands on role at Reliq. Since I joined the Board in July I have been able to witness firsthand the direct positive impact the Company's technology can have on the healthcare system and patient care. Using technology like Reliq's to improve efficiencies, reduce costs and improve the quality of care is the future of healthcare for both publicly and privately funded systems. I am particularly enthusiastic about Reliq's ability to provide high quality virtual healthcare to rural and remote communities, which have historically been under-served," said Mr. Brian Storseth.
