Meyers’ appointment comes as he takes over from the company’s founder and current President and CEO, Dennis Reid, who is retiring.

H2scan is a leading provider of proven proprietary hydrogen sensors and technologies for the hydrogen economy. The company revealed it had raised $70m to expand manufacturing to upscale its production to meet rising demand in February 2022.

The newly named President and CEO has been COO since February 2022. In that time, he has worked with key company leaders looking at ways to scale production, build R&D and engineering capability, and prepare for this vote of confidence from the investment community.

Meyers joined the H2scan board in 2017 after leading an investment as Altran’s North America Vice President of Corporate Development.

Meyers, said, “I could not be more excited about the opportunity to provide CEO leadership at H2scan as I believe we are well positioned to take advantage of the tremendous growth within the power transformer monitoring market, given our proven track record with leading OEMs and a growing list of end users.

“Additionally, we expect to be a major solutions provider to every aspect of the emerging hydrogen economy, from process control, to metering to safety assurance. I thank the board and Dennis for this opportunity and for establishing a strong foundation of people, technologies, and funding to build our future.

“H2scan is well positioned to help energy providers be more resilient and ensure safety and effectiveness of their hydrogen decarbonisation investments.”

Dennis Reid, said, “Dave joined us in February 2022, as COO and now in his new role as CEO, we are confident that he will lead us into a future focused on building on our current strength in the transformer division, while accelerating our efforts in the ever-expanding hydrogen economy.

“When I started H2scan I had seven employees, including my wife and me. I have been blessed with tremendous talent in all departments and unbelievable loyalty as we have developed H2scan into a global company.

“Dave has the right background and skill set to take H2scan to an even higher level. I look forward to continuing with the company in a much reduced non-management role to assist management and sales.”

North American Hydrogen Summit  

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?

If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
