SPRINGDALE, Ark.--NanoMech Corporation announced today that Christopher Galvin, former Motorola chairman and CEO, has joined the company's Board of Directors.
I am especially excited about their nGlide and TuffTek technology breakthroughs.
Chris and I first met when I was president of Skytel, and Chris was well on his way to leading Motorola to its best years of revenue and profits. Since those days, his business acumen has been widely appreciated and celebrated. He is an accomplished businessman, entrepreneur and innovator, with a tremendous reputation in American manufacturing. We look forward to working with him as NanoMech continues on our path of rapid growth and expansion, said NanoMech chairman and CEO Jim Phillips.

NanoMech has definitely been on my radar.
