As announced on February 9, 2021, Hyzon has entered into a definitive agreement for a business combination with Decarbonization Plus Acquisition Corporation (NASDAQ: DCRB), a publicly-traded special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) that would result in Hyzon becoming a publicly listed company.

Prior to his tenure at UPG, Mr. Kroll spent five years at PSAV, a $3 billion Blackstone backed global event technology services provider, where he served in roles of increasing responsibility, including Treasurer, Head of Corporate Development and Senior Vice President - Finance.
In the 10 years prior to his time at PSAV, Mr. Kroll was an investment banker, serving most of that time at JP Morgan. He covered the automotive sector as an advisor on many noteworthy transactions, including IPOs, secondary capital raises, acquisitions, divestitures and recapitalizations.
