Advanced Emissions Solutions, Inc. has announced the appointment of L. Heath Sampson as President and Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Michael D. Durham will work to ensure a smooth transition to Mr. Sampson and will retire from the company at the end of the month.
W. Phillip Marcum, Chairman of the Board of Directors stated, "We are pleased that Heath has accepted this position and the Board is confident that he has the right skills and experience to lead the next stages of the company's transformation. We look forward to further progress on the previously announced separation of the Refined Coal businesses from the Emission Control business as well as the evolution of the Emission Control business as its market shifts towards compliance solutions for the federal Mercury Air Toxics Standard and away from equipment for MATS."
Mr. Marcum continued, "Mike's contributions to all of the Advanced Emissions Solutions companies and the global air pollution control industry cannot be overstated. Since co-founding ADA Technologies in 1985 Mike has shown to be a visionary and driving force in creating and building multiple companies, including ADA Environmental Solutions, ADA Carbon Solutions and Clean Coal Solutions. His vision, creativity, and persistence have been essential factors in the success and outlook for these companies. We thank him and wish him well in his future endeavours."
