Clean Vision Appoints Veteran Tech Exec John R. Owen as COO; Following its GGII MOU Last Week, Company Expects Rapid Ramp Up in Global Ops
LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 29, 2021 / Clean Vision Corporation (OTC PINK:CLNV), a holding company that acquires and operates sustainable clean tech and green energy businesses, today announced that its Board of Directors has named John R. Owen Chief Operating Officer.
Mr. Owen brings over 30 year's executive experience in venture-stage and emerging-growth companies in technology, entertainment, and finance. His background includes managing high growth technology companies to successful exits, most notably the $100 million sale of The Ant Farm, an adtech company, to DDB, a subsidiary of Omnicom, Inc. while serving as CFO. Mr. Owen has also served a three-year tour as AVP at Bank of America.
His appointment follows the Company's subsidiary Clean-Seas signing a binding MOU June 23 with Green Global International Investments, in which Clean-Seas partners with this leading plastic waste-to-energy technology group that specializes in building commercial scale pyrolysis plants worldwide.
In his new role, Mr. Owen will actively manage the day-to day operations of parent company Clean Vision while advising management of portfolio companies 100BIO and Clean-Seas on operations and finance. Additionally, key responsibilities include overseeing accounting and administration for the Company and its portfolio companies as well as evaluating and financial modeling all prospective major business deals or new acquisitions.
Dan Bates, Clean Vision Chief Executive Officer, stated, 'John is a great get. He's served as CEO, CFO or COO of entrepreneurial, primarily tech companies for 20 of the past 24 years, several of which were publicly held. His ability to manage rapid growth is exceptional, and he arrives just in time as I anticipate a rapid ramp up in global operations in the weeks and months ahead following the Clean-Seas binding MOU with GGII," he added. "Clean-Seas has several important new business initiatives in active development that competitive factors preclude disclosing at this time, but as soon as we get these locked down, I'm looking forward to making those announcements."
Commenting on his appointment as COO, Mr. Owen said, "I've been intimately involved with developmental stage companies most of my career, so I know well when I see extraordinary value and opportunity. I'm delighted to join Clean Vision and work with Dan and his outstanding, growing management team."
Mr. Owen earned a BA in economics from UCLA, and an MBA, with an emphasis on international business, from Loyola Marymount University.
