"We are delighted to welcome Philip and Dante to the board," said Graham Howe, Chairman of Chalkfree Limited. "Their impressive track records and experience will strengthen our Board and are highly relevant as we plan our continued expansion and as more and more countries turn their attention to bringing interactive learning technology to their classrooms."

Additionally, Promethean's CEO, Jean-Yves Charlier has also been recognized for his significant accomplishments in driving the company forward over the past year when he accepted the British Venture Capital Association (BVCA) Award for the best CEO of private equity backed companies in the UK. The award recognises the achievements of CEOs throughout 2008 and nominees selected from across the UK were judged on their company's performance.

Mr. Charlier was recognized for his leadership, further consolidating Promethean's strong market position across the 90 countries in which it operates and for driving the company's revenue growth up 49% in 2008, following a 25% growth the previous year. This growth can be linked to key initiatives instigated by Mr. Charlier in 2008 included focusing the business solely on the education software sector, adopting a global indirect sales model and accelerating new product development investment.
