Mechanical Technology Names New Chairman/CEO

October 29, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Mechanical Technology Inc. (Albany, NY) announced that Dale Church, active in technology development for over 30 years, has been named Chairman and CEO of the company, succeeding George McNamee. The move, effective immediately, comes as Mechanical Technology increases its focus on the micro fuel cell commercialization efforts of its subsidiary, MTI MicroFuel Cells Inc.

"It’s the right time for Dale to move into a more active role at Mechanical Technology," said outgoing chairman, CEO and board member George McNamee, who is stepping down as part of his ongoing efforts to focus on his company’s venture capital activities. "Dale understands the needs of MTI Instruments and will also be a valuable resource for MTI Micro, which I believe is commercializing the single most exciting new energy technology for portable power."
