Sincere thanks and best wishes go to my many colleagues at GTI Energy who have shared this wonderful journey.”
“The board thanks David for his significant impact on the business. He transformed GTI Energy from a regulatory-focused R&D organization to a global brand with a diversified business portfolio. Through his leadership the company dramatically expanded its size, scope, and impact, supporting the energy industry across all market segments,” said Ranich. “Paula has the vision, experience, and ambition to expand GTI Energy – building on this strong foundation to develop and deploy the next generation of solutions needed in our global energy portfolio to address climate, economic, and national security threats. The Board of Directors looks forward to working with Paula to realize these objectives.”
