Mojo Ventures, Inc. Appoints Beverage Industry Veteran Glenn Simpson As Chief Executive Officer And President

Stock quotes in this article: MOJO

NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Mojo Ventures, Inc., (OTCBB: MOJO) ("Mojo" or the "Company") today announced that it has named Glenn Simpson as Chief Executive Officer and President. Mr. Simpson, a beverage industry veteran with over nine years of experience, joins Mojo following the company's completion of its recently announced corporate restructuring. The company will focus its activities on the continued development of its Dispensing Cap Technology and its Pinch™ low calorie, natural and organic sweetener, as well as other marketing and branding opportunities in the "better for you beverage" universe.

Mr. Simpson was Vice President and CFO of COCA-COLA BOTTLERS Uzbekistan, a Joint Venture with The Coca-Cola Company.  His primary responsibilities included corporate strategy and supervision of bottling and distribution operations. Accomplishments included growing revenues from a base at $4 million to over $160 million. The operation Mr. Simpson led was awarded "Bottler of the Year" by The Coca-Cola Company for two consecutive years based on product quality and revenue growth.

"This is an exciting time for Mojo," said Mr. Simpson. "Consumers are sending a clear message to the beverage industry that they want healthier options without sacrificing taste, and our technology provides great taste with fewer calories, making being healthy easier to achieve. I'm confident that my extensive experience in this space makes me the ideal executive to assist Mojo as it navigates its way to accelerated growth. In addition, I look forward to contributing to the success of Mojo's cap dispenser technology and the development of the company's all-natural, organic brands."

Mr. Simpson is a Certified Public Accountant and holds an MBA from Columbia University School of Business in New York.

In its corporate restructuring, Mojo spun off its other products in development to the former stockholders of Mojo's operating subsidiary, Specialty Beverage and Supplement, Inc. ("SBSI"). Mojo acquired SBSI in May 2011 in a reverse merger transaction. SBSI has assigned the Dispensing Cap and Pinch™ assets, including all related intellectual property (patent pending and trademarks), to a new wholly owned subsidiary of Mojo, Mojo Organics, Inc., and Mojo has transferred all of the shares of SBSI to pre-reverse-merger stockholders of SBSI in exchange for their surrender of substantially all of their shares of Mojo stock.  SBSI will retain all of its other assets and all liabilities, including the Company's principal office and distribution facilities in Holbrook, New York, as well as Mojo's other subsidiary, Graphic Gorilla LLC.
