USA Synthetic Fuel Corporation Appoints Daniel W. Dixon As Chief Financial Officer

USA Synthetic Fuel Corporation (OTCQB:USFC) (“USASF”), at its Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., announced the appointment of Daniel W. Dixon as Chief Financial Officer, effective January 1, 2013.

Mr. Dixon has served as the CFO for Comair Airlines since 2006. During Mr. Dixon’s career at Comair Airlines, which included a decade-long period of high growth as a NASDAQ-listed company, he held various executive level finance positions. As CFO, Mr. Dixon led the Finance, Risk Management, Supply Chain, Material Planning & Procurement, Information Technology and Resource Planning functions. Dan played a major role in the airline’s successful pioneering of the regional jet into the regional airline industry.

“USA Synthetic Fuel Corporation reminds me of Comair Airlines when I joined them in 1991,” commented Mr. Dixon. “Comair was very innovative and financially successful in introducing the regional jet into the regional airline sector, which resulted in a compounded annual growth rate of its stock price of over 30% annually the last ten years that it traded on NASDAQ. Like Comair, USASF is introducing a new technology, which is a low cost, efficient, clean energy alternative that could change the energy sector for years to come.”

USASF President and CEO Dr. Steven C. Vick said, “We are delighted to welcome Dan Dixon to the USASF team and look forward to his considerable CFO and public company experience to help guide the growth of the Company as we deploy environmental technology and build out Ultra Clean Btu Converters across America.”
