Advent Technologies says Kevin Brackman will be joining the company as its new CFO, reporting to Advent chairman and CEO, Vasilis Gregoriou.

Brackman recently served as CFO of Myers Industries, a publicly traded corporation with internationally located manufacturing and sales operations in the polymer production sector.

Before his promotion to CFO in 2018, he served as Myers’ chief accounting officer and corporate controller.

Prior to joining Myers, Brackman was director of financial planning and analysis, financial reporting and technical accounting at Ingersoll-Rand and previously held a variety of positions at Chiquita Brands International, including assistant corporate controller and controller – North American operations.

“I am excited by the opportunity at Advent and look forward to supporting the company through the integration of its targeted acquisitions of Serenergy and fischer eco solutions,” said Brackman.

“I plan to leverage the experience I’ve gained over nearly thirty years in accounting and financial reporting to help the Company in its mission to decarbonise the planet through Advent’s innovative fuel cell technology.”

Brackman replaces Bill Hunter, who had served as CFO of Advent following its merger in February, 2021 with AMCI Acquisition, where he was CEO.

Hunter left Advent to pursue other interests and continue his existing board work.

“Bill’s efforts were instrumental in Advent making its debut on the public markets, and everyone at the company wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavours,” added Gregoriou.
