"I am thankful to Dan Leff, who joined the Board of Hara and a short time later was asked to assume the CEO position," states Prudencio. "After 18 months of resolving important challenges and preparing for its future, Dan and the Board agreed that it was appropriate for a new CEO to lead the company's next stage of development." Prudencio will take office effective immediately and will lead the continued evolution of the company.

Prudencio continued, "Hara has a world-class customer base, dedicated team, committed investors, and a strong balance sheet. It is a great time to capitalize on these strengths and turn our management of key energy and sustainability data into greater business value. It is an opportunity that I am excited to lead."
