CIGS PV firm DayStar appoints entrepreneur to board

DayStar Technologies Inc of Milpitas, CA, USA, which develops copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic products, has appointed Daniel Germain as an independent director, serving on both its Audit and Compensation Committees as well as its broader Board of Directors.

“He brings invaluable experience as an entrepreneur and leader as president and founder of Breakfast Clubs of Canada,” says chairman Peter Lacey. “Daniel’s proven track record of starting and running a large organization serving breakfast to over 100,000 school children a day shows his creativity and execution ability. In addition, he brings relationships and support from multi-nationals including Coca-Cola, McDonalds, Pratt and Whitney, and Wal-Mart,” he adds.

“I look forward to working with Peter and the management team to contribute to the company's next stage of growth,” says Germain. “I hope to use my entrepreneurial background and contacts to help the company explore new opportunities and leverage DayStar's existing technology base into new markets.”

Germain started Club des petits dejeuners du Quebec (Quebec Breakfast Club) in November 1994, with a grant from the Pratt & Whitney Canada Employee Charitable Fund, and built it into a charitable organization. The Quebec Breakfast Club program was recognized by the United Nations World Food Programme. Using his proven Quebec model, Daniel founded Breakfast Clubs of Canada in 2005.

In recognition of his work in Quebec and across Canada, Germain has most recently been appointed the Order of Canada, has received the Medal of the Quebec National Assembly, the Meritorious Service Decoration (civil division) from the Governor-General, and the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee medal among others.
