SEATTLE, Feb. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearSign Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: CLIR) ("ClearSign" or the "Company"), an emerging leader in industrial combustion and sensing technologies that improve energy, operational efficiency and safety while dramatically reducing emissions, announces changes to its Board of Directors.
On February 13, 2020, as he intended when he first agreed to serve on the Board, James M. Simmons resigned as a director of the Company to re-focus his resources on his other obligations. Mr. Simmons' resignation was not due to a disagreement on any matter relating to the Company's operations, policies or practices. On the same date, the Company's Board of Directors appointed Colin James Deller, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, as a director.
"On behalf of ClearSign and the Board I want to thank Jim for stepping up to the task and joining the Board for the past year. His frank guidance, drawn from decades of experience, has been well received and aided us through a time of important upgrades relating to Board composition and management talent as well as commercialization strategy," said Robert T. Hoffman, Chairman of the Board of ClearSign.
"I had two goals when I joined ClearSign's board. First, I wanted to make sure we had the right leadership in place and second, that there was a cohesive commercialization strategy to market the Company's game changing technologies," said Jim Simmons, retiring Board Member of ClearSign. "I believe that with Jim Deller's industry experience, the Company has accomplished both goals with Jim's appointment as CEO. It only makes sense that Jim takes a place on the Board. I am confident that the Company is in a better position from when I joined and I look forward to seeing the continued progress."
