SCIenergy, Inc. Names Steve Gossett Jr. as CEO, Aligns Organization for Sharpened Growth
Dallas, Texas - May 22, 2012 - SCIenergy, Inc., the global leader in providing cloud-based energy management solutions for building owners and operators, today announced that its board of directors has named Steve Gossett Jr. as Chief Executive Officer. Gossett Jr. succeeds Russ McMeekin, who engineered SCIenergy’s transformation into a broad-based energy-efficiency solutions company following the company’s recent acquisitions of Servidyne, Inc. and Transcend Equity Development Corporation.
Gossett Jr., who previously served as Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Transcend, brings more than 17 years of management experience in the energy efficiency space to his new role. In 1997, he pioneered the Managed Energy Services Agreement (MESA™) to provide financing of energy savings projects in the commercial real estate market. MESA is now a key component in SCIenergy’s comprehensive offering of energy management solutions.
"Steve Gossett Jr.’s appointment is a critical milestone for SCIenergy," said McMeekin. “After assembling the building blocks of a truly best-in-class energy and systems management platform which can now finance and deliver meaningful energy efficiency savings for building owners, it is time we leverage the executive talent from our acquisitions to lead the company’s next phase of growth.”
“It is a great honor to be selected to lead SCIenergy,” said Gossett Jr. “The global market for comprehensive energy efficiency solutions and associated financing is enormous and untapped, and I'm looking forward to strengthening our market presence in commercial building portfolios throughout the United States and beyond."
The company also made several changes to its organizational alignment to finalize the consolidation of the Servidyne and Transcend acquisitions. SCIenergy’s award-winning building performance solutions team will remain based in Atlanta, Georgia with corporate headquarters now located in Dallas, Texas and regional sales activity based out of San Francisco and New York. Following the realignment, the company will operate with a total of nearly 100 employees across all locations.
“We have all the ingredients in place to accelerate our growth by providing MESA financing to commercial real estate owners and managing the deployment of that capital appropriately to deliver energy savings benefits,” added Gossett Jr. “No other company can match our track record and decades of experience in all the facets of energy efficiency solution management and I am thrilled to direct the most talented group of professionals in the industry.”
