Scott Wainwright, current MagneGas Sales Manager, has been appointed Interim President and Director. 

"Consistent with our original plan, we have now evolved to the point where we need both internal and field leadership," stated MagneGas CEO Dr. Ruggero Santilli. "Rich has been very ably serving us in both roles, helping us conserve resources until our business justified separation of duties. We are pleased to announce that we have now arrived at that point.

Scott joined us this summer in a Sales Management position after demonstrating the ability to lead and rapidly grow various businesses. He brings to MagneGas a marketing expertise that we believe will help us significantly enhance our visibility and consumer awareness in the coming months. We are conducting a comprehensive search for a permanent in-house President with clean tech, fuel and public company experience."
