"We are delighted to have Mr. Arnstein join our company and believe it is a vote of confidence on our long term strategic plan," stated Mr. Bob Rai, CEO.

"On behalf of the VANC board of directors, I want to say how pleased we are to have someone of Alan`s experience joining our board," commented Mr. David Hall, Board Chair. "Beginning this past year we have embarked on a new strategic program to bring innovative and value-added products and services to pharmacies in Canada. Alan`s two decade executive experience with one of Canada`s most successful pharmacy chains and his historical relationships in our industry will be invaluable to our growth," concluded Mr. Hall.

"I am delighted to be joining VANC at this early stage such that I might bring my years of experience and personal relationships to bear on the new strategic pathway of the company," stated Mr. Arnstein. "Pharmacists are hungry for new value added products and services that VANC is bringing to the market place and I am pleased to be part of this growing team," concluded Mr. Arnstein.
