Research Frontiers director Graham Settle retires

Mr. Settle will now focus on humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan and Ukraine

Research Frontiers Inc. has announced the retirement of Board member William Graham Settle effective June 13, 2022. Graham Settle has been a member of the Board since 2020, was the Chairman of its Compensation and Stock Option Committee and was a member of the Company’s Audit and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committees.

Mr. Settle noted, “Serving on Research Frontiers’ Board has given me confidence that our company is on an exciting path to transform how cars, buildings, aircraft and other vehicles and consumer electronics are made and used, and their benefits to the environment and society.

“My responsibilities to my family and professional life have taken more of my time and energy than I had anticipated when I joined the Research Frontiers Board in 2020. And the demands on my time and concentration escalated when I joined the effort to evacuate and resettle our Afghan allies after the United States withdrew in late August and with humanitarian efforts in Eastern Europe.

“I started my relationship with Research Frontiers in 1986 when it became a public company. As a long-time shareholder, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on this Board and plan to continue to be engaged, albeit less formally, with the Company.”

Joseph M. Harary, President and CEO of Research Frontiers, added, “Through the years, and even before becoming a member of our Board of Directors in 2020, Graham has been a steady presence and familiar face at Research Frontiers and in the smart glass industry, and has made valuable contributions to Research Frontiers. While we all will miss having his insights and experience at our Board meetings, we will continue to draw upon his expertise and knowledge through his service on our Advisory Board. When a person has the ability and opportunity to save human lives, we must do everything we can to support that effort.”
