Volansi, Inc. , the vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) middle-mile drone delivery services specialist, has hired Mark Mesler as Chief Financial Officer.
A start-up veteran, Mesler has significant experience commercializing and scaling emerging technologies. Prior to joining Volansi, he served as Vice President of Finance and Investor Relations at Bloom Energy, a position that saw him play an integral role in taking the company through several funding rounds and an eventual IPO. Mark also worked as Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Operations at Aquest Systems and as Director of Finance at KLA-Tencor.
“Autonomous delivery drone s are well-positioned to be the transformational supply chain technology of our age, and Volansi simply has the best technology out there,” says Mesler. “I was also impressed by Volansi’s mission-driven, sustainably smart business model, and market approach.”
At Volansi, Mesler will spearhead the company’s financial and capital raising initiatives, as well as implement infrastructure to enable the company to strategically scale to meet its global market opportunities.
“Having recently raised $50 million in Series B financing , Volansi is set to take our mission of freeing the world from the limits of infrastructure to a whole new level,” says Hannan Parvizian, Co-Founder and CEO of Volansi. “The wealth of operations-centric experience and impressive track record for driving financial performance that Mark brings to the table will be essential to us achieving this mission.”
After years of working to transform the way global businesses procure their critical energy needs, Mesler is excited about the opportunity to transform the way businesses address their critical logistics requirements. “Whether it be delivering spare parts to remote industrial sites or life-saving medication during a disaster relief effort, Volansi is already proving the many benefits of delivery drone s,” he adds. “I am thrilled to be a part of a company that is having such a positive impact on the world.”
