Mr. Harden has over twenty years of executive sales, marketing, business development, and strategic planning leadership in technology and industrial services. Many of these years were focused on selling carbon reduction and energy solutions, including complex, multi-faceted, multi-million-dollar, energy services agreements incorporating onsite power production programs for buildings, solar, cogeneration and waste to energy as well as water and wastewater systems.
With extensive experience leading direct sales teams and indirect sales networks (independent reps, distributors, and resellers), at both large multinationals and small energy technology start-ups, Mr. Harden has led teams from 3 to 125 people and delivered annual revenues of up to $500 million.
Mr. Harden will assume responsibility for all Thermal Energy’s North American sales channels including our existing team of Area Sales Managers as well as the established network of distributors and manufacturers reps related to the acquired Boilerroom Equipment and Sofame Technology businesses.
“We sought an experienced sales management professional to replicate the success of our sales leadership in Europe, and we are delighted to welcome Ken Harden to the Thermal Energy team. As a proven positive agent of change, Ken brings a fresh perspective for Thermal Energy to truly capitalize on the unprecedented market demand,” said William Crossland, Thermal Energy CEO.

This press release contains forward-looking statements relating to, and amongst other things, based on management’s expectations, estimates, and projections, the anticipated effectiveness of the Company’s products and services, the timing of revenues to be received by the Company, the anticipated effects of COVID-19 on the business, backlog, and revenue, and the expectation that orders in backlog will become revenue.
Information as to the amount of heat recovered, energy savings, and payback period associated with Thermal Energy International’s products are based on the Company’s own testing and average customer results to date. Statements relating to the expected installation and revenue recognition for projects, statements about the anticipated effectiveness and lifespan of the Company’s products, statements about the expected environmental effects and cost savings associated with the Company’s products, and statements about the Company’s ability to cross-sell its products and sell to more sites are forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve a number of risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. Many factors, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, could cause events and results to differ materially from those stated. Fulfillment of orders, installation of products, and activation of products could all be delayed for a number of reasons, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, which would result in anticipated revenues from such projects being delayed or in the most serious cases eliminated. Actions taken by the Company’s customers and factors inherent in the customer’s facilities but not anticipated by the Company can have a negative impact on the expected effectiveness and lifespan of the Company’s products and on the expected environmental effects and cost savings expected from the Company’s products. Any customer’s willingness to purchase additional products from the Company and whether orders in the Company’s backlog as described above will turn into revenue is dependent on many factors, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, including but not limited to the customer’s perceived needs and the continuing financial viability of the customer. The Company disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any such statements except as required by law. Readers are referred to the risk factors associated with the Company’s business as described in the Company’s most recent Management’s Discussion and Analysis available at www.SEDAR.com.
Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
