CORAL GABLES, Fla., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PowerVerde Inc. (NASDAQ: OTCQB PWVI) ("PowerVerde" or the "Company"), a developer of renewable thermal powered electricity generator systems, today announced the appointment of Hank Leibowitz, a noted expert in the field of advanced thermal energy systems, to the newly created position of senior design engineer. This position was formed in anticipation of the launch of the Company's next generation Liberator, a waste heat-to-energy electrical generation system.

Hank Leibowitz stated, "I'm excited to come on board as their Senior Design Engineer. I followed PowerVerde's claims of an efficient, small scale, thermal energy system operating on extremely low temperatures with healthy skepticism. PowerVerde agreed to share technical information and actual screen shots of their data log and system tests from an independent engineering firm. Having seen credible data, I visited their lab in Phoenix AZ and after two days of hands-on due diligence and witnessing a working system, combined with my industry knowledge of potential competitors, I was convinced of PowerVerde's viability to deliver a best of breed system capable of operating on low temperatures sources and with price points that make ROI sense. I look forward to working with the entire team to help bring this game-changing, new generation thermal energy system to the market."
