Eric Prades Joins Plug Power Board of Directors

21 Jun 2013

Plug Power Inc. (Nasdaq:PLUG) has announced that Eric Prades, CEO of Air Liquide’s Advanced Business, will be appointed to its board of directors.

Prades brings more than 20 years of international strategic and operations leadership from his work at Air Liquide, especially in Hydrogen Energy markets. Since 2008, the Group has grown to become a leader within the European hydrogen industry, having deployed hundreds of hydrogen fuel-cell systems.

Prades joins the Plug Power board as part of a strategic $6.5 million investment by Air Liquide that aims to help fuel the Plug Power’s strategy to grow its hydrogen fuel cell business for forklift trucks and other horizontal markets. Its GenDrive fuel cells are successfully deployed at customer sites such as Walmart, Sysco, P&G, BMW and the recently announced Ace Hardware Corp.

"Eric's deep understanding of the technology and business dynamics of the hydrogen fuel cell market makes him a perfect candidate for our board of directors," said Andy Marsh, President and CEO of Plug Power. "I am pleased to welcome Eric to our board and I look forward to working with him as we grow Plug Power."
