This new board appointment further strengthens the strategic partnership between Arthrotó and DIRTT.

Today, Arthrotó announced the newest addition to its board of directors, Chuck Kraus, former Executive Vice President and General Counsel of DIRTT.

Kraus’s previous affiliation with DIRTT – Arthrotó's significant partner in bringing revolutionary construction solutions – is poised to add considerable value to the startup's ambitious mission. DIRTT's specialization in customizable, adaptable, and sustainable interior construction aligns seamlessly with Arthrotó’s mission of leveraging prefabrication methodologies.

"We are excited to welcome Charles to Arthrotó's board of directors," says Douglas Hayden, Founder of Arthrotó.

"With Chuck's deep-rooted expertise in both the corporate legal domain and his past affiliation with DIRTT, his addition to our board magnifies our vision,” remarked Hayden. It's a collaborative synergy as we aim to transform underutilized office spaces into modern, sustainable housing solutions.”

Kraus brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Arthrotó. With more than two decades of experience as both a US and Canadian corporate and securities lawyer, his expertise will be invaluable to Arthrotó as it continues to reshape the future of housing and embark on new strategic initiatives.

Charles Kraus boasts an impressive resume in the corporate legal sphere including over 20 years of experience as a corporate lawyer in both Canada and the US.

Kraus is renowned for his notable expertise in capital markets, joint ventures, and M&A transactions. In his current role, he is a partner at Scale LLP, a law firm that specializes in supporting start-ups. Additionally, he is the founder and managing member of Kraus Law PLLC, providing fractional GC services to a range of clientele, including emerging growth companies, pre-IPO issuers, and newly public companies.

Beyond his legal endeavours, Kraus actively participates on several non-profit and private company boards of directors, where he lends his expertise in strategic planning, governance, and capital-raising efforts.

Charles Kraus said of his appointment, "I'm thrilled to be part of a pioneering team like Arthrotó. The housing sector is on the brink of a transformation, and I am eager to contribute to Arthrotó's ambitious and sustainable vision for the future."

As Arthrotó continues to gain momentum and build strategic partnerships, Kraus's expertise and connections will undoubtedly be instrumental in fostering growth, improving governance, and exploring new strategic avenues. With Kraus on board, the company is even better positioned to realize its mission and address the pressing need for affordable, sustainable, and efficient housing.
