Serious Execs Change RolesMarch 13th, 2012 by DWM Magazine
Serious Energy, based in Sunnyvale, Calif., has confirmed that Marc Porat, Serious Energy’s co-founder, was recently appointed as the company’s chief executive officer. He takes over for Kevin Surace, previous CEO and chairman of the board, who will now continue to serve as chairman of the board. Surace is also a co-founder.
Porat has founded and led technology companies since 1983, according to the Serious website. Since 2002 he has created three companies focused on the built environment, concentrating on sustainable construction materials and methods to help reduce climate change.
Surace says this isn’t the first time the two have changed roles. Porat was the company’s first CEO, then moved to chairman and Surace became CEO. Now the two are changing roles again and Surace says that they both work together daily.
