Brian Hemphill brings over two decades of operations experience to Cambrian
Boston – December 1, 2016 – Cambrian Innovation, a biotechnology company solving critical resource challenges for industry, announced today that Brian Hemphill joined the team as Senior Director of Operations. Brian, who has spent over two decades leading operations in the wine industry, will manage the efficiency of EcoVolt project deployment while ensuring that quality is maintained.
“I have seen firsthand the value that Cambrian’s EcoVolt solutions provide to customers,” said Brian. “They are the most innovative wastewater-to-energy solutions in the industry, and I’m looking forward to working with the team at Cambrian Innovation to optimize their delivery and commissioning.”
Brian comes to the team from Constellation Brands, Inc., where he was the Director of Process Technology for almost two years. He worked to increase production efficiency at sites across the United States and Canada, often interfacing with equipment vendors and recommending new technology, equipment, and methods for process improvement.
Prior to joining Constellation’s corporate group, Brian was the Director of Operations at Clos du Bois, one of the company’s wine brands. He worked closely with Cambrian Innovation during his tenure, overseeing the company’s commercial demonstration of EcoVolt at the winery in 2013. “The EcoVolt was commissioned quickly; it came up to speed and operated better in some areas than competing technology,” Hemphill has said of the project.
“Brian brings a valuable perspective to our team,” says Matthew Silver, Founder & CEO of Cambrian Innovation. “He has been on the other side of the equation, and can put himself in our partners’ shoes. He understands their needs and pain points. Brian will be a great asset to Cambrian as we continue to deploy our EcoVolt solutions across the United States, and even across the globe.”
