Zefiro Methane Appoints Global Philanthropist Daryl Heald to its Board of Directors
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ZEFIRO METHANE CORP. (the “Company”, “Zefiro”, or “ZEFI”) is pleased to announce that it has appointed Daryl Heald to the Company’s Board of Directors. As a globally renowned philanthropist who facilitates giving for high-net-worth families across four continents, Mr. Heald is beginning to focus on environmental causes based on the rapidly evolving situation of climate change resulting from causes such as oil and gas wells leaking carbon and methane. In a press release dated November 17, 2022, Zefiro announced its application to trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”).
Mr. Heald began his professional career in 1988 as a commercial real estate broker in Atlanta, Georgia. In 1997, Mr. Heald joined the Maclellan Foundation and served on its executive committee, shaping the foundation’s global grant-making strategy. He has also helped to launch several charitable organizations to include Generous Giving, Giving Wisely, and Generosity Path. Mr. Heald has long championed the notion of Giving as Opportunity, not Obligation, which is a defining component of his approach to philanthropy.
Regarding his appointment to Zefiro’s Board of Directors, Mr. Heald commented, “Zefiro stands out to me as a meaningful player in the emissions-reduction space because they have a logical, transparent, and hands-on business model. In recent years there has been lots of chatter about taking action to mitigate climate change, though very little actual execution. This can at least partially be attributed to the fairly limited bandwidth of firms who plug oil and gas wells in the United States, a supply gap that Zefiro plans to overcome through strategic acquisitions. I believe this can afford the Company the ability to get in front of an unprecedented opportunity for both environmental impac and economic prosperity, and I am very excited to be a member of Zefiro’s Board of Directors.”
