WALTHAM, Mass. — GMZ Energy, a developer of high temperature thermoelectric generation (TEG) technology, has announced the appointment of Scott Rackey as vice president of business development. In his new role, Rackey is responsible for scaling GMZ’s business model and developing strategic partnerships to help the company continue on its path towards commercialization.

Cheryl A. Diuguid, CEO of GMZ Energy, said, “I am pleased to welcome Scott to GMZ’s leadership team at such a critical time in the company’s history. His technical expertise and entrepreneurial background will be crucial in helping us better communicate GMZ’s value to current and potential OEM partners.”
