For more than 20 years Ed has built, expanded developed and led high tech engineering teams from early stage research and development into large scale commercial production. He has carefully managed multi-million dollar development budgets to guide his teams to create a diverse range of innovative products that achieved a high level of commercial and technical success.

Ed has held leadership roles with Ballard Power Systems, General Hydrogen, & Plug Power Canada.

Subsequently he became the VP of Engineering at General Hydrogen working on a $50M hybrid engine project with 60 direct reports that went on to sell 13,000 units throughout North America.

Ed graduated with honors from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor’s of Science in 1990 and with a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering in 1992. Ed has been a registered Professional Engineer in British Columbia since 1994.

Graeme Lempriere CEO stated “At the heart of our organization is a dedicated team of talented technology professionals with years of applied research and development experience in commercializing successful technologies.

Provide the production and technical teams with clarity on which aspects of our Company's technology are important principles and which aspects are artifacts of how we got here. This pragmatic approach will translate into efficient and effective results as we scale up the production of the CX-6 Smart Seeder and new synergistic projects as they arise. I look forward to working closely with management as we accelerate our growth programs.”
