Tecton Corporation (TTNC) announced that Guy Zajonc has joined its Board of Directors.

Company CEO, Micah J. Eldred commented, "We are pleased to have Guy join our team. Guy's contacts and experience in our industry will prove a valuable resource for our management and operational teams to rely upon, and on behalf of the shareholders, I wish to thank him for his commitment to our Company."

Guy M. Zajonc, JD, Background

Mr. Zajonc is currently President and CEO of Five by Five Media, Inc. (2008 to present). He served as Senior Manager and General Counsel to Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. (2003 to 2006). At Odyssey, he helped manage marine operations, helped build the research depart, found and hired the researchers that were directly responsible for the location of the Mercedes, HMS Victory and the Gairsoppa. A graduate of Gonzaga University Law School and a member of the Washington State Bar since 1978, (retired 2010) Mr. Zajonc has participated in a number deep and shallow water projects since 1995, some of which are listed below:

-- Japanese Submarine I-52. The I-52 was sunk in the Atlantic Ocean in 1944 with 64,000 troy ounces of gold onboard. At 17,200 feet, the I-52 is the deepest shipwreck ever discovered and visited by humans. Mr. Zajonc was project manager and shareholder, and participated in the manned investigation of the wreck site. The project used the Russian Academy of Science's deep submersible program to film and photograph the site in 1998 for National Geographic TV and magazine.

-- Titanic. Mr. Zajonc dove to the Titanic in September 2000 as part of a mission conducted by Deep Ocean Expedition where he served as General Counsel and Project Manager.

-- Amelia's Earhart's Final Flight. As a principal in Howland Landing, LLC and co-coordinator of the project, Mr. Zajonc helped organize the first ever deep-water search for the lost airplane of Amelia Earhart off Howland Island in the Central Pacific. The mission mapped over 600 square miles in water up to 18,000 feet deep.

-- Battleship Bismarck. For Deep Ocean Expeditions, Mr. Zajonc helped organize the first manned dives on the Battleship Bismarck in 2001 and was part of the expedition.

-- The Atlantic Target. In 2001, Mr. Zajonc was part owner and a team member on the 16,000 foot discovery dive to the unidentified ship known as the Atlantic Target. Over 1,500 gold and silver coins and 65 artifacts were recovered from the deepest historic shipwreck ever excavated, a small merchant vessel that sank south of Bermuda some two hundred years ago.

-- SS Republic. In August 2003 Mr. Zajonc joined Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc.'s senior management team as General Counsel and was initially responsible for onshore support of Marine Operations. In November of 2003 gold was discovered on the wreck of the SS Republic in 1,600 feet of water. Over 51,000 gold and silver coins and 13,000 artifacts have been recovered with an estimated value of $75 million USD.

-- Washington Coast Dives. In 2006, Mr. Zajonc undertook manned submersible dives and 3-D filming off the coast of Washington State in partnership with Lightspeed Design Group of Seattle, using Nuytco Research, Ltd. subsmersibles that resulted in the 3-D, high definition documentary film Dive! Manned Submersibles and the New Explorers.

In addition to his work with technical experts, Mr. Zajonc has also worked with cinematographers from around the world during expeditions, including Emmy Award winner Mark Stouffer with National Geographic and IMAX film director and producer Stephen Low. He also met and drafted the ship charter agreements for James Cameron on his trips to Titanic for the IMAX movie "Ghosts of the Abyss", and the Bismarck for the high-definition television production "Jim Cameron's Expedition Bismarck" for Discovery Channel.
