The packaged waste water treatment system represents the next generation in wastewater treatment through the utilization of advanced materials and emerging treatment technologies.
Roanoke, Virginia (PRWEB) September 21, 2011
AppTech Solutions, LLC announced today that it has hired Jerome Parnell III as Chief Executive Officer and President to manage the growing product development company. In 2008, AppTech Solutions developed new technologies for the packaged wastewater treatment sector and launched its first product, THE INCEPTOR, in August 2010. The packaged waste water treatment system represents the next generation in wastewater treatment through the utilization of advanced materials and emerging treatment technologies. In August 2011, under a specific licensing agreement, AppTech Solutions entered into a strategic relationship with Contech Construction Products, Inc of West Chester, OH to re-brand the technology into its URBAN GREEN product portfolio, and to pursue global market expansion of the packaged waste water treatment technologies.
Jerome Parnell III will be responsible for AppTech’s contract manufacturing, R&D pipeline, and strategic growth. Most recently, Mr. Parnell served as VP, New Business Development, and then subsequently, as Chief Operating Officer for International Bio-Resources (IBR) from 2004–2011. Throughout this period, he managed daily operations and developed a strategic plan to successfully grow IBR’s infrastructure, while managing multiple business unit divestitures through a series of customer acquisitions. Ultimately IBR’s remaining infrastructure and assets were acquired by a global pharmaceutical company through vertical integration, which was led by Jerome and IBR’s executive management team. His expertise is change management, lean manufacturing operations, structural and organizational management, and executive and strategic management. Jerome received his undergraduate education from Lehigh University and continued graduate level education in business and healthcare management at Stetson University and University of Central FL.
Commenting on the recent hire, Scott Easter, Chairman and COO stated: “Jerome is a business management professional with 17 years experience in healthcare, bio-technology, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. More importantly, Jerome has experience managing start-up companies, building corporate infrastructure, and managing strategic growth. We are excited about the new addition to our team”.
AppTech’s Chief Technology Officer and Vice Chairman, Dan Early, also commented on the recent appointment: “Jerome will be an important asset to AppTech Solutions as the company positions itself to be an emerging water and wastewater product development company”.
