LINDON, Utah, Nov. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Profire Energy, Inc. (OTCBB:PFIE), a technology company which manufactures, installs and services burner management systems and other combustion technologies for the oil and gas industry, today announced the appointment of Arlen Crouch to serve on its board of directors.

"Arlen offers a deep understanding of organizational management and productivity," said Brenton Hatch, Chief Executive Officer of Profire. "Coupled with his financial experience, Arlen has a unique ability to hone an organization towards value-adding, efficient activities. We believe he will be a great asset to the Profire team as we pursue international growth, product-line expansion, and a potential uplisting to a national exchange."

Mr. Crouch served as President and CEO of Franklin Quest Co., now FranklinCovey Co., where he played a key role in the Company's IPO and listing on the NYSE. Prior to his appointment as President and CEO, he served in a variety of senior management roles including COO and Executive VP. At the time Mr. Crouch stepped down in 1997 to serve a three-year assignment in Washington DC for the LDS Church, the Company had a market capitalization in excess of $500 million.  Previously he served as a First Vice President and Regional Director of Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc., with responsibilities for retail operations in the Southern California region. Mr. Crouch has also served as Chair of the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce.

Mr. Crouch is expected to enhance the Company's productivity, organizational structure, and navigation of capital markets.

"One of the challenges that we anticipate in the coming years is the expansion of the organization itself, while raising awareness of the benefits of burner management technologies," said Andrew Limpert, Chief Financial Officer of Profire. "Having someone of Arlen's stature on our board to assist with the responsible expansion of Profire—both organizationally and financially—is a great win for Profire."

"Joining Profire is a unique opportunity," said Mr. Crouch. "To grow a company like Profire in the time that they have—and to do it without debt—is exciting. It has been clear to me that Profire is determined to improve the industry's burner management technologies, and deliver meaningful stakeholder value in the process."
