In Hawaii, Cyanotech Corporation’s Board of Directors has named Mawae Morton as President, effective immediately. Mr. Morton will report directly to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Gerald Cysewski.

Cyanotech’s Chairman, Michael Davis said, “We are pleased that Mawae has chosen to join Cyanotech. He brings a deep understanding of complex bio-based operating businesses, having held various executive positions in the bio-refinery and agriculture disciplines. Cyanotech has built its leadership position as a quality producer of high-value nutritional products and Mawae will significantly complement the company’s strengths with his business expertise.”
