“Appointing Bob is part of our overall long-term strategy of enlisting top talent to lead our senior executive team while supporting our application development and commercialization goals to penetrate targeted industries and accelerate sales,” said Stuart Jara, a director and Chief Executive Officer of HydroGraph. “Bob’s proven financial experience in facilitating the funding of over $5 billion in projects globally will play a direct role in allowing us to achieve our ambitious goals for commercialization in 2023. I also want to thank Mathew Lee for his efforts as CFO over the last months. We are pleased to have him continuing on as Chief Accounting Officer with the company.”
