Sarah Gasch

Chief Financial and Operations Officer

Sarah has more than 20 years of broad financial and management experience with both public and private companies. She graduated summa cum laude with a BBA in Accounting from the University of Texas at Arlington and began her career in public accounting.

Sarah soon learned that she was intrigued with all aspects of managing a business and left public accounting to focus on a career in industry. While in industry, Sarah has been responsible for a variety of corporate functions including finance, accounting, treasury, strategy, human resources, information technology, operations, corporate governance and engineering (although numbers remain her true love).

She has led finance and operations teams for both start-up and established public companies, including serving as Chief Accounting Officer for a newly-listed renewable energy company with biodiesel, biomass, and wind projects and Chief Executive Officer for an oilfield technology start-up with an oil reclamation project on the North Slope of Alaska.
