VizN C-level shake up as former CEO resigns


US energy storage firm ViZn Energy Systems has appointed Stephen Bonner as the president and interim CEO of the zinc iron flow battery, the company announced on January 26.

Bonner, who was named chairman of its board of directors on January 1, assumed the additional roles following the resignation of Ron Van Dell, who had been at the company since May 2014.

Van Dell is the founder and president of strategic advisory firm Longbow Innovations.

Mike Grunow, vice president of marketing, told BESB: “Successful corporate leadership translates across industries and the ViZn board is pleased that someone with Stephen Bonner’s pedigree is such a strong believer in the company’s future.

“Getting the right person for the long term is our only focus and the role of ViZn CEO is proving to be a very popular opportunity. Until then, we are in great hands.”
