Energy Focus Creates Advisory Board -- Rear Admiral Kendell Pease, US Navy Retired, Appointed As Senior Military Advisor

SOLON, Ohio, Oct. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Energy Focus, Inc. (OTCQB:EFOI) today announced the creation of an Energy Focus Advisory Board to be comprised of leading experts in government and commercial markets.

"We are pleased to announce the formation of Energy Focus' new Advisory Board whose purpose will be to help us penetrate significant market segments by bringing key industry insights and connections to critical decision-making networks to Energy Focus as we grow our LED retrofit businesses," said James Tu, Energy Focus Executive Chairman.

"After serving 30 years in the U.S. Navy and spending 15 years at General Dynamics, Rear Admiral Pease is an ideal choice for our inaugural Advisory Board member. Rear Admiral Pease worked not only as the Navy's Chief of Information, but also more recently as General Dynamics' vice president of government relations. His vast wealth of experience and understanding of United States Navy and government contracting procedures will be invaluable in our initiative to expedite LED adoption throughout the military fleet," continued Mr. Tu. 

Eric Hilliard, Energy Focus President and Chief Operating Officer adds, "We very much look forward to the Rear Admiral's support as we transform the Navy's lighting from its legacy incandescent and fluorescent technology to an all LED solution. Energy Focus' military LED product line, which includes our IntelliTube® - technology, will bring much reduced life cycle costs as well as significant ongoing energy savings due to its superior efficiency."

"I am pleased to join Energy Focus as an Advisory Board member to help the Company continue to bring energy efficient  lighting products to the fleet, which will be critical in meeting the fuel savings targeted by the Secretary of the Navy," said Rear Admiral Pease, USN retired. "Energy Focus' LED lighting technology is an important element in fostering good economics for the Navy, and it's also equally important as a strategic factor in elevating fleet readiness upon which we all rely."
