April 24, 2015 – Liquid Light, a leader in technology for using carbon dioxide to make major chemicals, today offered its appreciation for co-founder Kyle Teamey. Kyle has stepped down as CEO of Liquid Light and will be joining a strategic investor in early-stage firms in May.
Dave Law, Liquid Light’s Executive Vice President, Operations, has been named CEO. Dave joined Liquid Light on March 31, 2014, with 33 years of proven leadership at Bayer Material Science. Dave’s successes include driving the development of new technologies, commercial scale-up of new technologies, creating sizable high-performance organizations, and senior executive roles. Dave’s most recent position at Bayer was Vice President of Production and Technology of Basic Chemicals at the Baytown Texas Facility, Bayer’s largest facility in the Americas, which includes world-scale chlor-alkali electrochemical operations.
“Under Kyle’s leadership, Liquid Light grew from a great idea to a recognized leader in the very hot field of carbon utilization,” said Thomas Huot, Managing Director, VantagePoint Capital Partners and member of the board of directors of Liquid Light. “Kyle incubated the firm, built a stellar team, advanced our technology substantially, achieved key milestones, and won accolades including the #1 spot in the Biofuels Digest ‘40 Hottest Smaller Companies’ and ‘Rising Star of the Year’ in the Global Cleantech 100. We are grateful to Kyle for his valuable contributions. With its strong leadership team and Board of Directors, Liquid Light will continue its momentum towards commercialization.”
“Turning carbon dioxide into an opportunity rather than liability has the potential to bring huge benefits to chemical producers, firms with waste CO2, brand owners, and the environment,” said Kyle. “I love Liquid Light and am thrilled to have helped build it to this stage. With our completion of our Series B funding, technical and commercial progress, and strong team, I felt I could now apply myself to new entrepreneurial opportunities, knowing that the company is in a strong position. I’ll continue to support the company in any way I can.”
