Mark Cross

Professor Mark Cross

Professor Cross was appointed Chair of the Board in November 2016. He also serves as Executive Director for R&D. Professor Cross recently retired as the LCRI Professor of Renewable Energy in the College of Engineering at Swansea University. With over 40 years of experience in the field of computational modelling, analysis and optimisation of engineering processes and systems, he pioneered the concept of simulation-based design using advanced numerical methods on high-performance parallel computers. He has worked with Crossflow Energy since its earliest days on conceptual design and analysis of its turbine systems and for much of this time has provided essential technology support to the Board. Mark has wide industrial and senior management experience. He was a Head of School, Director of Research and then Pro Vice Chancellor of the University of Greenwich over a 20 year period, where he spun out a number of high technology start-up companies from his research team, including one the US which successfully sold to a multi-national corporation in 2012.

Anthony Fenwick-Wilson

Anthony founded Crossflow Energy in 2007 and is currently Executive Chairman. He has had broad international business experience in many fields. Having realised the multi-billion dollar growth potential in the energy conservation business, he founded CarbonAqua, which within five years of start-up had over £80 million of business in the pipeline, with clients such as Microsoft, Mercedes Benz and the British Government. After examining the enormous potential of what has become the Crossflow Energy turbine, he formed the Crossflow Energy Company and resigned as the executive chairman of CarbonAqua in order to totally concentrate on developing Crossflow Energy into a profitable, global company, with the financial benefits that that could bring to those involved.
