AEHI Elects Retired Navy Rear Admiral and Payette Businessman to Serve on the Board of Directors
BOISE, Idaho, Feb. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTC:AEHI.PK; www.aehipower.com) announced today that the company elected Rear Admiral Michael T. Coyle (Ret) and James Ryan Holt to the Board of Directors.
Both men are highly qualified in regards to their respective expertise. They also live in Idaho and therefore bring a local perspective to the Board.
RADM Michael T. Coyle (Ret) had a 33-year career as a United States Naval Officer, achieving the rank of Rear Admiral. He also has extensive experience in operations, engineering and maintenance of nuclear and conventional power systems. Coyle has maintained executive positions at Hanford Waste Treatment Plant, Exelon Nuclear, Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) and Nuclear Management Company (NMC), just to name a few. He has 11 years as a senior manager and executive in commercial nuclear power and nearly 3 years as a Department of Energy (DOE) contractor.
James Ryana Holt is a well-respected businessman in Payette County, Idaho and has been a long-time supporter of AEHI’s plans to build a nuclear power plant in Payette County. He comes from a lengthy sales-oriented background, in which he largely worked in the telecommunications industry for company’s like MCI Communications, McCaw Communications, and Cellular One. Holt has since transitioned into the insurance industry and maintains his own practice in Fruitland, Idaho.
“I am very excited to see these two men accept invitations to the Board of Directors. They have a great deal of experience that I believe can only help AEHI grow. It was also very important that we bring a local flavor to the Board, which I believe these men accomplish. They are well known and highly respected in the community and should prove to be invaluable additions to our already stellar Board of Directors,” said Don Gillispie, AEHI President and CEO.
Coyle and Holt replace John Franz and Ralph Beedle, who retired after more than five years of service with the company.
“Franz and Beedle will be greatly missed. Their service has been invaluable in guiding AEHI and helping to accomplish some remarkable goals, which includes an historic local approval to build a nuclear power plant in Idaho. We wish them the best in their future endeavors,” said Gillispie.
