How hard is it to take over the reins from a former CEO who was the company's founder? The key challenge for a new CEO is to look at the business through a fresh set of eyes and try to determine how it might be taken to new heights by thinking about it differently.
We have an opportunity to create significant value by going in different directions with the same technology. It is a challenge in that people are used to doing things in a particular way, but … there is an openness to change.
You need to take advantage of [that]in the first six to 12 months that you are in the job. What do you like about the clean-technology business?

It forces you to work and to really think and understand what you are doing. The way that I am able to think through problems in a critical and analytic way is a product of the two years I spent at Oxford.
