Mr. Golm has been working with the senior managers of Tellurex as a mentor and in team development. He will continue to work with the company in that capacity.
The company’s Chairman, Clyde McKenzie, noted “In a short period of time, Tellurex has transitioned itself from a first rate researcher to a thermoelectric product development and marketing company. Doing it fast and getting it right has taken great leadership. Craig and Catherine are terrific leaders, and they are part of a core team that extends to creative engineering under Richard Harmon and quality manufacturing under Jeff Howe. That team is just scratching at the surface of its potential.”
