VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Loop Energy™ (TSX: LPEN), a designer and manufacturer of hydrogen fuel cells for commercial mobility, is pleased to announce the addition of Brad Miller to its Board of Directors. Miller’s appointment is the next step to evolving Loop Energy’s board, an effort which began last year with the appointment of Kent Thexton as Board Chair and Paul Cataford as Director, Corporate Secretary and CFO. Loop Energy continues to strengthen its leadership and expertise at the board level as it focuses on the next stage of growth and develops a path to profitability.
Miller brings a wealth of experience and success as a leader who has built and scaled multiple clean technology manufacturing businesses to profitability. Miller’s AdvanTec Global Innovations expanded into developing reformers for stationary hydrogen-electric generators and hydrogen fuelling station equipment. Previously Miller founded IMW Industries, a manufacturer of compressed natural gas (CNG) equipment, and he grew the business to over $100 million in revenue and 700 employees worldwide.
In conjunction with this appointment, Neil Murdoch has resigned from the board.
“We are excited to welcome Brad and look forward to drawing on his extensive experience in the hydrogen and cleantech manufacturing sectors,” said Loop Energy Chairman, Kent Thexton. “Brad’s knowledge and expertise in scaling manufacturing operations is a key value-add at the board level as we grow Loop Energy and leverage its proprietary technology. We’d like to extend our gratitude to Neil Murdoch for his dedication and contribution to the board.”
“Brad’s experience scaling manufacturing operations and driving profit margins will be beneficial to Loop Energy and our team,” said Loop Energy President & CEO, Ben Nyland. “More focus on emerging and profitable market segments and an emphasis on sizing our operation to current market conditions will drive profitability and shareholder value appreciation sooner. Management and the Board are aligned on a vision and a direction forward.”
