By Hannan Parvizian, CEO and Co-Founder of Volansi
Today I am excited to introduce Mark Mesler as our new Chief Financial Officer.
A start-up veteran, Mark has a long history of commercializing and scaling emerging technologies. As Vice President of Finance and Investor Relations at Bloom Energy, Mark played an integral role in taking the company through several funding rounds and an eventual IPO. He has also worked as Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Operations at Aquest Systems and as Director of Finance at KLA-Tencor.
Having recently raised $50 million in Series B financing, Volansi is set to take our mission of freeing the world from the limits of infrastructure to a whole new level. The wealth of operations-centric experience and impressive track record for driving financial performance that Mark brings to the table will be essential to us achieving this mission.
As CFO, Mark will spearhead Volansi’s financial and capital raising initiatives. He will also be charged with implementing infrastructure to enable the company to strategically scale to meet its global market demands.
After years of working to transform the way global companies procure their critical energy needs, Mark says he is excited about the opportunity to transform the way businesses address their critical logistics requirements.
“Whether it be delivering spare parts to remote industrial sites or life-saving medication during a disaster relief effort, Volansi is already proving the many benefits of delivery drones,” Mark told me. “I’m thrilled to be a part of a company that is having such a positive impact on the world.”
I’m equally as thrilled to welcome Mark to our Leadership Team and I’m looking forward to working together as we continue to redefine supply chains using autonomous delivery drone technology.
