Mr. Jamey Hadden - Founder

Mr. Hadden holds a degree in Economics from his home state school - the University of Kentucky - and an International MBA from the Moore School of Business in the USA.
 
Mr. Hadden began his working career with the global combustion engineering company, Hotwork, Inc., taking ‘care, custody and control’ of refractory dry-out and start-up procedures in some of the world’s largest industrial complexes. Amongst other installations, Mr. Hadden worked on some of industries’ first commercial biomass-to-electricity power plants during the 1980s, including facilities owned by ADM, International Paper and Blue Diamond Foods.
 
For the last twenty years Mr. Hadden has owned and managed ‘start-up’ operations in sun-rise industries from Hong Kong to Argentina. Initially, Mr. Hadden developed businesses in the nascent private international telecommunications industry, first with AT&T and then with several of his own vehicles including Technology Control Services and TeleSol.


During the last decade, Mr. Hadden’s focus has returned to energy, chiefly in the ‘clean energy’ sectors. Currently living in Cambodia, Mr. Hadden is a partner and sits on the Board of VTG Power Cambodia and is also a founding owner of both Green Energy Biomass J.S.C. (Vietnam) and Asia Biomass & Electric, Ltd (Hong Kong).
 
Mr. Hadden is a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels, sits on the Vietnamese National Biofuels Plan Steering Committee and spends a good deal of time speaking globally on sustainable investment and related ‘green’ energy issues such as climate change mitigation and poverty alleviation.
