Former Xantrex CEO joins ZENN board
Many things reflect the credibility of a company, and among them is the composition of its board of directors. So I find it interesting that ZENN today announced that John Robert Wallace, former CEO of power-electronics firm Xantrex, has been appointed a director. Wallace is plugged into all sectors that are important to ZENN. He is currently chairman of Enova Systems, the California maker of electric and hybrid-electric drive trains. He is also a former chairman of the World Electric Vehicle Association and the United States Advanced Battery Consortium. Earlier in his career he spent 20 years at Ford Motor Co., where he held the title of director of sustainable technologies. He was also once the executive director and chairman at TH!NK Nordic.
Wallace, like any seasoned exec, wouldn’t just join any board. Obviously he’s done his research and felt comfortable associating with ZENN. For this reason, I view this appointment as quite positive. After all, if EEStor wasn’t going to deliver would Wallace waste him time?
Still waiting, however…
