enVerid Systems Names Christian Weeks Chief Executive Officer
Boston, US, Feb. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- enVerid Systems, the pioneer of HVAC Load Reduction® (HLR®) technology, today announced the hiring of Christian Weeks as Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Weeks will assume the new role effective immediately.
Mr. Weeks joins enVerid after a meteoric career with Boston-based EnerNOC, Inc., which was recently acquired by Enel X, the Enel Group’s advanced energy services business line. Mr. Weeks most recently served as Vice President & General Manager of Enel X’s North America business-to-business product line. Mr. Weeks’ hire is central to enVerid’s commercial scale-up strategy.
Company co-founder, Udi Meirav, who has served as CEO since the company’s inception, will remain with the company as President and CTO. “Bringing in an executive of Christian’s caliber is very exciting for our Company and our investors”, he said. “His addition to the team will help us scale up commercial operations in response to overwhelming demand from the market.”
Based in Westwood, MA, enVerid has developed a breakthrough technology to improve air quality in buildings, reduce HVAC system costs, and lower energy consumption. The technology, known as HLR (for HVAC Load Reduction), has undergone years of development and testing and is now rapidly being embraced and adopted in commercial buildings all over the world.
Last month, enVerid’s HLR technology received the highest honor of the HVAC industry, the AHR Expo Product of the Year Award. Independent judges from the industry described the technology as “not only innovative, but visionary,” calling it “an industry game-changer.” enVerid also took home the top award in the AHR Expo Green Building Category.
“I am honored and thrilled to join enVerid, which is one of the most remarkable start-ups to emerge in the Boston clean tech arena focused on energy efficiency and green buildings”, said Mr. Weeks, who is tasked with leading the company as it scales up sales and manufacturing operations to meet growing market demand. “enVerid has a proven, breakthrough technology that improves the health and energy efficiency of the massive built environment. I look forward to working with the talented enVerid team and committed investors to scale up the business to capture this exciting market opportunity,” he added.
enVerid’s HLR has fundamental impact on the entire design and scale of HVAC systems in commercial buildings, allowing significant downsizing of such systems by eliminating the parasitic load associated with the practice of “air replacement”. The common practice of pushing large amounts of outside air into the building through its HVAC systems, driven by the needs to maintain indoor air freshness, creates excessive load on the air conditioning systems which requires oversized units and tremendous energy waste. The HLR solution, pioneered by enVerid, provides the desired air freshness by removing unwanted indoor air contaminants without requiring wholesale replacement of the indoor air. The downsizing of systems enabled by HLR technology delivers immediate capital cost savings on new HVAC systems while providing up to 40% energy savings. Furthermore, recycling indoor air also means reducing the building’s intake of polluted outside air. Better indoor air quality is proven to significantly enhance cognitive performance, productivity, and overall health.
About enVerid Systems, Inc. enVerid is committed to improving energy efficiency and indoor air quality in buildings worldwide through its innovative, award-winning HVAC Load Reduction® (HLR®) solutions.
