UT Professor of Physics, Emeritus; President, Lucintech Inc.
"Toledo's water crisis due to Lake Erie's ongoing cyanobacteria blooms is a stunning wake-up call on the environment. On the other hand, advances in photovoltaic solar energy led by Northwest Ohio entrepreneurs and scientists are creating huge opportunities for transitioning to clean energy. I am convinced that the OEC is the organization with the integrity and muscle to lead our citizens in adopting sustainable practices and technology for a future with cleaner air and water. It is an honor to serve on the Board of such an effective and important organization."
