SAN MARCOS, Texas, Jan. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quantum Materials Corp (OTCBB:QTMM) today announced that Quantum Materials Corp founder and Quantum Materials Asia CEO Stephen Squires has returned to helm Quantum Materials Corp as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, replacing outgoing CEO and Director Sri Peruvemba.

“Sri did a great job in elevating awareness of Quantum Materials throughout the broader display industry,” said Mr. Squires. “We are now moving our best materials into high-volume production and working closely with our film partners to develop market-ready products. Our proprietary volume QD production process is fulfilling its promise to deliver quantum dots at favorable price points and at a scale unequalled by our competitors’ batch processing methods.”
