Hydrogenics Mourns Passing Of Board Member Norman Seagram

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, May 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hydrogenics Corporation (Nasdaq:HYGS) (TSX:HYG), Hydrogenics Board of Directors and Employees are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our friend and board member Mr. Norman Seagram this past Monday, May 27 th.

Throughout his career, Norman distinguished himself as a person who leads with integrity and character in such a way which others are inspired to follow. He has always displayed selflessness in his service that puts the needs and interests of others first. Throughout his life, he has displayed a vigour and energy that would rival any of his contemporaries.

Norman Seagram joined the Hydrogenics Board of Directors in 1998 and shortly after was elected chair as the company prepared for its Initial Public Offering. He has had a distinguished career as an engineer and executive holding the role of President & CEO of The Molson Companies, Air Liquide Canada and Skydome and Vice Chair Tennis Canada. In addition, he has demonstrated dedicated service on several charitable boards including Chair, Toronto Symphony Foundation; Director, Toronto Symphony Orchestra; and trustee of both Harbourfront Foundation and Trinity College School. He has also served on the advisory board of the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Toronto and INSEAD, Fontainebleau, France. He is a former director of the Toronto Economic Development Corporation (TEDCO).

Since joining us more than 15 years ago, Norman served the board as a wise and experienced guide and thoughtful source of insight. At the recent Annual General Meeting held on May 8 th, the Board of Directors, in special recognition of his service to the company, appointed him Honorary Chairman Emeritus of the Board of Directors of Hydrogenics.

In addition, the board established The Norman M. Seagram Employee Recognition Award to be presented each year to a Hydrogenics Employee who has exemplified the values and character of Norman Seagram -- most notably Leadership, Service and Energy. In consideration of Norman's dedication to community service and charities, the award comprises a recognition award to the recipient and a $1000 donation to be assigned to the charity of the recipient's choice.
