On August 30, 2019, Timothy Hauck notified Taronis Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) of his resignation as the Company’s interim Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. Mr. Hauck also resigned from his positions with the Company’s subsidiary Taronis Fuels, Inc. Mr. Hauck’s resignation is not the result of any disagreement with the policies, practices or procedures of the Company, but was due to not wanting to relocate his family to the Company’s new corporate headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona.


On September 1, 2019, the Company appointed Tyler B. Wilson, Esq. as its new Chief Financial Officer to fill the vacancy left by Mr. Hauck’s resignation. Mr. Wilson has served as the Company’s General Counsel since mid-2017 and served as corporate Secretary and as its Executive Vice President since December 2018. He will continue to serve as the Company’s Secretary and General Counsel in addition to his role as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Wilson has extensive experience in corporate finance and management. He played a primary role in advancing the Company’s turnaround and rebranding beginning in early 2017, including development of the Company’s acquisition model, leading capital market financings, managing staff and service providers and advancing international expansion. Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Wilson served as the managing attorney of Wilson Law Group, PLLC, a corporate and securities boutique he founded in 2011. Over the course of his career, Mr. Wilson has founded and co-founded a number of successful start-ups and has extensive experience in business operations, capital markets transactions and operational leadership.
