Walter B. Menzel, president of the San Francicso-based WM Group, is now a member of the Cyanotech Corp. board of directors.
Kona-based Cyanotech makes nutritional supplements from microalgae.
Menzel “joins our board at an opportune time as we ramp up Cyanotech’s strategic focus on our own branded products sold online and at retail,” said Brent Bailey, president and CEO.
WM Group is a marketing company, but additionally, Menzel is executive director of the Peter Michael Foundation, which underwrites cancer research. He also serves as a branding and marketing consultant to Ecopia Farms.
He was elected to the Cyanotech board at its annual meeting Aug. 29.
