COLUMBIA FALLS, Mont., Jan. 26, 2018 – ViZn Energy Systems, Inc. (“ViZn”) announced today that Stephen Bonner, who became Chairman of its Board of Directors on January 1, has also assumed the role of President and interim CEO following the resignation of Ron Van Dell.
“The ViZn vision is compelling – a breakthrough battery technology that is safe, cost-effective, and able to perform both power and energy services without degradation for 20 years. It is the missing link between accelerating sources of non-dispatchable renewable electricity and efficient delivery to the energy consumer. The zinc-redox flow battery is far superior to the constrained lithium-ion alternative,” Bonner said.
“There is nothing like this today, and I am honored to join the ViZn family to further commercialize and scale this innovation,” Bonner continued. “We appreciate Ron Van Dell’s contributions to ViZn and wish him every success in the future.”
Bonner was a Director as well as President and CEO of Cancer Treatment Centers of America for over 13 years. He is currently an advisor to four private equity firms as well as an Entrepreneur in Residence at The Harvard Business School. He is an investor, mentor, and advisor to many business and social entrepreneurs. He earned his Bachelor of Arts from Amherst College and his Juris Doctor from Mitchell Hamline College of Law.
