Juhl Energy Inc., a Minnesota-based clean energy solutions provider and community wind project developer, has appointed Chuck Templeton to its board of directors.
Templeton has been named a Class I director of the company and will serve on Juhl's audit committee, compensation committee, and nominations and governance committee. Templeton founded OpenTable, a global company focused on dinner reservations that went public in 2009. He also previously served as chairman of the board for GrubHub and is on the board of directors for Auctions By Cellular LLC and Getable.com.
In addition, General Wesley K. Clark (ret.), who has served as a director of Juhl since 2009, has resigned as director and assumed the position of senior advisor to the board.
‘Chuck's appointment has happened concurrent with General Wesley Clark's move from a director to a senior advisor to the board,’ says Dan Juhl, chairman of Juhl Energy. ‘This has allowed us to maintain director independence while at the same time enjoying the leadership and guidance that both of these two fine people bring to our company. We believe Mr. Templeton's focus on environmental issues as well as his demonstrated past success and business acumen will be an asset to the board.’
