A New CEO at Mascoma

Lebanon, NH-based Mascoma, which is developing technology for making biofuels from cellulosic ethanol, said today that chemical industry veteran William Brady has been appointed chief executive officer. Brady steps into a post vacated last August by Bruce Jamerson, who became chairman of venture-backed Mascoma and its subsidiary Frontier Renewable Resources. Brady previously spent 23 years at Cabot Corporation, a Boston-based materials manufacturer that makes rubber and carbon-based materials for inkjet toner and other applications. “Bill has extensive experience running large commercial divisions for a major chemical company, which is exactly the skill set we need as Mascoma transitions into a commercial enterprise,” Jamerson said in a statement.
