Rheaply, a climate tech company that combines a resource-sharing network with a user-friendly asset management platform, today announced that it has added Betsy Ziegler, CEO of 1871, and Mike Werner, Lead for Circular Economy at Google, to its board of directors.
Ziegler and Werner join Mike Fitzgerald, Partner at High Alpha, and Rob Eckardt, Board Member at Thrive Advisory Services, LLC.
“We are thrilled to have Betsy and Mike on our board,” said Garry Cooper, CEO and Co-founder of Rheaply. “Both of them have been such strong advocates for Rheaply and the principles of the circular economy throughout our journey as a company. With them officially on board, we will be able to accelerate our progress towards a more circular future.”
“Rheaply is a credit to the Chicago tech ecosystem and a testament to the power of collaboration,” said Betsy Ziegler. “Since its founding, Rheaply has fostered communication and connection within the Chicago tech community, demonstrating in real time the benefits of the circular economy. I look forward to working with Rheaply’s team to spread that spirit even further.”
“Over the past few years, we’ve seen Rheaply’s technology radically simplify organizations’ ability to meet ESG goals,” said Mike Werner. “As the need for corporate ESG action continues to increase, Rheaply will become even more indispensable. I am honored to be able to help propel Rheaply forward and drive more organizations toward Rheaply.”
