Siluria Technologies has announced that Erik Scher, currently Executive Vice President and company co-founder, will replace Ed Dineen as Siluria’s Interim CEO. Mr. Dineen has announced that he will be stepping down from the CEO role in January 2016.
“From our start seven years ago, Siluria has consistently exceeded expectations,” said Dr. Scher, “be they technical, financial, or commercial. I look forward to leading this phenomenal organisation and working with our partners as we commercialise our technology and find new solutions to global energy challenges.”
During Mr. Dineen’s time at Siluria, the company formed multiple key strategic partnerships, scaled-up its breakthrough technology, expanded its commercial activities domestically and internationally, and built up a world-class organisation. “I am pleased to transition my role to the capable hands of Dr. Scher. I will remain involved in the company’s operations through my role on the Board and look forward to advancing the company’s bold mission and supporting our accomplished management team.”
“Siluria has grown tremendously under Ed’s leadership,” said Siluria Chairman Karl Kurz. “We appreciate what Ed has done for the company and look forward to his continuing service on the Board. We are fortunate to have such a well-equipped leader in Erik to step into the role of Interim CEO as Siluria continues to enhance and commercialise its revolutionary technology. The Board will be working with the team at executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles to assist us in engaging our next CEO.”
