Mr. Reifsnyder specializes in entrepreneurism, strategic leadership and has had considerable success in the commercialization of early stage products and unique intellectual property, creating enviable market positions through direct sales, licensing, strategic alliances, mergers, and acquisitions.

Mr. Reifsnyder’s career in business strategy and corporate development spans a wide technology spectrum including renewable and alternative energy, supply chain software, industrial controls, web-based interactive multi-media, and database marketing.

Mr. Reifsnyder is a co-founder of Hybridyne Power Electronics (HPE) and serves as the Vice President of U.S. Operations. He is responsible for all aspects of product marketing, business development and sales. Prior to founding HPE in 2007, Mr. Reifsnyder founded and led a strategic consulting firm that specialized in the development of renewable and alternative energy projects and companies including a manufacturer of utility grade wind turbines and a distributor of waste-to-energy systems. An earlier entrepreneurial effort at Legato Video, where he was co-founder and CEO, resulted in the debut of the world’s first video instant messaging system at COMDEX in 2001. The company was sold in 2004 to a private investment group.

In an earlier role as Senior VP of Strategy and Corporate Development at TSE and NASDAQ listed Descartes Systems Group, a global Supply Chain Software company with four international offices, Mr. Reifsnyder re-organized the company’s product portfolio and re-defined its market message, resulting in booked sales increasing by 66% - the company’s stock skyrocketed from $10.50/share to $90.00 in the Spring of 2000. Prior to his tenure at Descartes, Mr. Reifsnyder co-founded dx/dt Technologies to advance an M&A agenda in the Supply Chain software market. The strategic vision and ability to develop several term sheets with attractive acquisition candidates resulted in the quick sale of the company 6 months after its incorporation at an enviable price differential.
