Mr. Blanshay is the founder and CEO of Revision Military, a leader in protective soldier equipment, and has an extensive background in the financial services industry.
“In December of 2011, as Steve Carkner and I met with both private investors and investment groups during our financing discussions, we were fortunate to be introduced to Jonathan Blanshay and Revision Military,” said Mark Kershey, CEO, Panacis Inc. “Jonathan has built his company from a relative unknown to a world leader in mission critical soldier protection, which is the same path that Panacis intends to take with our mission critical battery systems. With his experience and guidance as a board member we can benefit from the lessons that Jonathan has already learned during the impressive growth of Revision Military. Our markets and technologies are synergistic and it is most rewarding to have Revision as a strategic customer.”
“There were three key reasons why I chose to accept a position on the Board of Panacis,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision Military. “First, as an investor in the company, I welcome the opportunity to have involvement and oversight in the executive decisions. Second, I believe the market positioning of the technology is unique and I certainly see many potential applications for the products. Third, I was very impressed by Panacis founder Steve Carkner’s passion, knowledge and background and now with the addition of Mark Kershey as CEO, I believe they have a very solid management team. As well, the engineering talent at Panacis is second to none. I am bringing my business and financial background to the mix to help the company grow and be successful.”
