|Allen Lin||62||Director||January 2007|
Allen Lin has over 20 years of packaging industry and financial venture investment experiences which included successful start-ups, H & H Glass Inc., in 1989, where he is instrumental in global manufacturing outsourcing for rigid packaging material (including but not limited to glass containers) in packaging distribution solutions for North America.

Born and raised in Taiwan, Mr. Lin is fluent in both Chinese and English.
William Gresher retired in July 2009 as the Chief Financial Officer with The Mexmil Company where he had been for 4 years. Prior to Mexmil, Mr. Gresher held high level financial positions in several companies including the Chief Financial Officer for Distinctive Appliances, Inc. (DACOR), in Pasadena, CA, Vice President of Finance for Fadal Engineering in Chatsworth, CA., Vice President Corporate Financial Planning for Allergan Inc., Irvine, CA., Vice President Controller, Bentley Laboratories, Inc., Irvine CA, a division of Baxter International, Inc., Controller of Bell & Howell Co., Lincolnwood, IL., and several years with Arthur Andersen & Co., Chicago, IL.

Committees of the Board of Directors
The Board does not have any committees at this time.
The Board does not have a nominations committee because the Board does not believe that a defined policy with regard to the consideration of candidates recommended by shareholders is necessary at this time because it believes that, given the limited scope of the Company’s operations, a specific nominating policy would be premature and of little assistance until the Company’s business operations are at a more advanced level. There are no specific, minimum qualifications that the Board believes must be met by a candidate recommended by the Board. Currently, the entire Board decides on nominees, on the recommendation of any member of the Board, followed by the Board's review of the candidates’ resumes and interviews of candidates. Based on the information gathered, the Board then makes a decision on whether to recommend the candidates as nominees for director. The Company does not pay any fee to any third party or parties to identify or evaluate or assist in identifying or evaluating potential nominees.
Currently, the Board functions as an audit committee and performs some of the same functions as an audit committee, including the following: (i) selection and oversight of the Company’s independent accountant; (ii) establishing procedures for the receipt, retention and treatment of complaints regarding accounting, internal controls and auditing matters; and (iii) engaging outside advisors. The Company is not a “listed company” under SEC rules and therefore is not required to have an audit committee comprised of independent directors.
The Board has determined that its members do not include a person who is an “audit committee financial expert” within the meaning of the rules and regulations of the SEC. The Board has determined that each of its members is able to read and understand fundamental financial statements and has substantial business experience that results in that member’s financial sophistication. Accordingly, the Board believes that each of its members have the sufficient knowledge and experience necessary to fulfill the duties and obligations that an audit committee would have.
The Board does not have a compensation committee and is not required to have such a committee because the Company is not a “listed company” under SEC rules. The Company is currently a shell company with nominal assets, no employees and no active business operations. Its business plans are to seek a private operating company with which to merge or to complete a business combination in a reverse merger transaction. As such, the Company has no formal compensation program for its executive officers, directors or employees.
The Board has determined that William Gresher is the only current director of the Company that is an “independent” director. The Company is not a "listed company" under SEC rules and is therefore not required to have independent directors.
There has not been any defined policy or procedure requirements for stockholders to submit recommendations or nomination for directors. The Board does not believe that a defined policy with regard to the consideration of candidates recommended by stockholders is necessary at this time because it believes that, given the limited scope of the Company’s operations, a specific nominating policy would be premature and of little assistance until the Company’s business operations are at a more advanced level. There are no specific, minimum qualifications that the Board believes must be met by a candidate recommended by the Board. Currently, the entire Board decides on nominees, on the recommendation of any member of the Board followed by the Board’s review of the candidates’ resumes and interview of candidates. Based on the information gathered, the Board then makes a decision on whether to recommend the candidates as nominees for director. The Company does not pay any fee to any third party or parties to identify or evaluate or assist in identifying or evaluating potential nominee.
The Company does not have any restrictions on shareholder nominations under its certificate of incorporation or by-laws. The only restrictions are those applicable generally under Nevada corporate law and the federal proxy rules, to the extent such rules are or become applicable. The Board will consider suggestions from individual shareholders, subject to evaluation of the person's merits. Stockholders may communicate nominee suggestions directly to the Board, accompanied by biographical details and a statement of support for the nominees. The suggested nominee must also provide a statement of consent to being considered for nomination. There are no formal criteria for nominees.
Meetings of the Board of Directors and Committees
The Board took a number of actions by written consent of all of the directors during the year ended December 31, 2015. Such actions by the written consent of all directors are, according to Nevada corporate law and the Company’s by-laws, valid and effective as if they had been passed at a meeting of the directors duly called and held. The Company's directors and officers do not receive remuneration from the Company unless approved by the Board or pursuant to an employment contract.
Compensation of Directors:
Directors received remuneration totaling in aggregate of $12,000 during the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014. Directors receive $500 a month in directors’ fees with the exception of Mr. Lin who received no compensation for director’s services for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014.
Code of Ethics for the Chief Executive Officer and the Principal Financial Officer
On September 7, 2004, the Board of Directors of the Company adopted the Code of Ethics for Chief Executive Officer and the Principal Financial Officer, which was included as exhibit 14.1 with the December 31, 2004 Form 10KSB.
To the Company’s knowledge, there are no material proceedings to which any current officer or director of the Company is a party adverse to the Company or has a material interest adverse to the Company.
RELATED PERSON TRANSACTIONS
Related Party Transactions
Other than the foregoing and the below, none of the directors or executive officers of the Company, nor any person who owned of record or was known to own beneficially more than 5% of the Company’s outstanding shares of its Common Stock, nor any associate or affiliate of such persons or companies, has any material interest, direct or indirect, in any transaction that has occurred during the past fiscal year, or in any proposed transaction, which has materially affected or will affect the Company.
The Company paid Mr. Allen Lin, President of H&H Glass and a member of the board of directors of the Company, compensation of $326,000 and $305,000 for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
