VANCOUVER, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Westport Innovations Inc. (TSX:WPT / NASDAQ:WPRT), engineering the world's most advanced natural gas engines and vehicle systems, announced today that Jill Bodkin has been elected Chairman of the Board of Directors. Former Chairman, John Beaulieu, will remain on the board as a director and has been awarded the title 'Chairman Emeritus.' Joseph Caron, formerly of Westport's Advisory Board, has been appointed to the Board of Directors.

"Our Board is committed to building enduring value for Westport," said Ms. Bodkin. " My Board leadership will draw on my life's work - building partnerships in international capital markets. The Board is proud of Westport's people, who today deliver the best of alternative fuel engines and vehicle systems and maintain a lead at the forefront of a global shift to natural gas in all forms of transportation."

"The Board cannot thank John enough for his leadership and insights as Westport's Chairman these last 16 years. We are fortunate to continue to benefit from John's outstanding character and business judgment through our transition, as he stays on as a Director." Added Ms. Bodkin, "The addition of Joseph to the Board of Directors brings direct experience with business cultures and market trends that determine success in Asia. His participation on the Board will benefit Westport as we continue to develop and launch products in the fastest growing markets in the world."

"It has been an honor to participate in providing direction and be a part of Westport's growth since its genesis in an engineering lab with grad students at UBC," stated John Beaulieu.  "I continue to be optimistic for Westport to lead globally in the development and marketing of natural gas engines."

" Westport is competing in many of the largest and toughest markets on the planet. It has established and maintains technological lead in many areas," noted Joseph Caron. "This is an exciting time to be involved in shaping Westport's future."
