Canada's Corvus Energy named Matthew Koenig as its vice president of the Americas.

"We are very fortunate to have someone with Matt's knowledge, enthusiasm and network to lead our efforts in North, Central and South America," company president and CEO Brent Perry said in a statement. "His broad set of experiences at managing complex businesses and sales operations, all combined with his integrity, passion and knowledge, were major considerations for me to diligently recruit him."

Koenig has more than 25 years of management experience in finance, distribution, manufacturing and technical sales and marketing. He most recently was vice president of Isoflex Technologies Pty. Ltd. America. Earlier, Koenig held several positions in the marine and composites industries, including chief operating officer and vice president of The Violette Cos., and high-level management roles at State Street Bank and Trust, Fidelity Investments and Bank of Boston.

Koenig will operate from Corvus Energy's U.S. office in Boston.

"Corvus is going to rapidly change the marine industry," Koenig said in a statement. "The company's technology enables hybrid and full electric propulsion in the immediate future. The benefit is reduced fuel consumption and carbon emissions with a rapid and notable return on investment. The opportunities are limitless."
