Envision Solar International advised of key changes to its executive management staff including its founder, Bob Noble, taking on the role of executive chairman while Desmond Wheatly, current president and Envision COO, will succeed Noble as CEO. Chris Caulson has additionally been named Envision Solar’s CFO with all changes effective August 10. Both Wheatley and Caulson have worked together for over ten years in publically traded and privately held international and domestic companies.
Envision Solar's new President and CEO, Desmond Wheatley, said, “I, like everyone associated with Envision Solar, appreciate the vision and leadership that Bob has brought to the company over the last six years. We are delighted that Bob intends to stay closely involved with our operations for the foreseeable future. At the end of the day, our great potential comes from the unique nature of our high-quality products. Bob invented the Solar Tree structure, which has become iconic in the solar shaded parking industry. He had the vision to see that it needed to track the sun and recognized the value of integrating EV charging infrastructure well before anyone else did. These paradigm shifting and proprietary products set us apart from the competition and have created the foundation from which we will continue to build a great company. I am excited about the opportunities that lie in front of us and look forward to continuing to create shareholder value at Envision Solar.”
