Tanknology Names Ignacio Allende
Vice President

Austin, TX – Tanknology Inc., the world's largest Underground Storage Tank (UST) environmental compliance services company, today announced the promotion of Mr. Ignacio Allende as the company's Vice President of International Operations and Intellectual Property.

Ignacio previously held the position of Director of International Operations, where he has been responsible for all aspects of Tanknology's international presence. Under his leadership, Tanknology has gained licensees in countries including Turkey, Mexico, South Africa, and Nigeria. As a direct result of Ignacio's success, Tanknology now has a presence in more than 25 countries, covering 6 continents.

According to Allen Porter, Tanknology President and Chief Executive Officer, Allende will be continuing to focus on growing Tanknology's presence abroad, both in new markets, as well as through continued marketing efforts in countries where Tanknology currently provides its best in class compliance management and testing services. In this expanded new role, Ignacio will also be responsible for managing Tanknology's extensive portfolio of intellectual property.

"Ignacio has done a tremendous job of educating people in areas of the world where there has been little or no attention paid to the potential environmental impacts of UST systems", Porter said. "Ignacio has been successful in providing environmental compliance around the globe, and we look forward to further expanding the Tanknology brand through his leadership."

Prior to joining Tanknology nearly 9 years ago, Ignacio worked for several global telecommunication companies, including AT&T and Telefonica Spain, as a Product Manager for International Telecom Trading, and Manager of International Relations.

Ignacio holds both a degree and MBA in Business Administration & Economics from Universidad Catolica de Chile, as well as an MBA from The University of Texas at Austin.

Allende is based in Tanknology's Austin, TX Headquarters. He can be reached at (800) 800-4633, or via email.

Based in Austin, Texas, Tanknology operates across America and around the world, providing UST environmental compliance testing and related services at more than 50,000 sites per year, for more than 3,000 customers. Internationally, Tanknology licensees span more than 25 countries, providing services to the largest petroleum operators in the world.
