We're assembling a team of thought leaders and innovators; their knowledge and understanding of, and commitment to not only participating in, but leading the new energy world is impressive and, in many ways, refreshing. To this point, my career has centered on large corporations. I'm energized and excited to be part of something in its early stages of development. We have learned from the successes and mistakes of other companies in our space and we will build a better and stronger company because of it. We are poised to become the market leader. Who wouldn't want to be a part of that? It is said that success is the intersection of opportunity and preparation. I think there is no doubt that we are prepared and the opportunity right now is certainly compelling."
