It is with great excitement that I embark on this journey with such a talented and dedicated team.

I see tremendous potential for ClearVue to leverage its patented smart technology to transform glass buildings into massive solar panels, generating power where it’s needed, reducing power transmission requirements across large distances1. I look forward to working with the ClearVue team and leading the Company through its next stage of growth.”
