American Electric Technologies Inc. (AETI), a supplier of custom-designed power distribution and control solutions for the traditional and alternative energy industries, has appointed Neal Hare to the newly created position of chief technology officer.

"Neal has been a key member of our leadership team for 17 years, during which time he has provided outstanding leadership, knowledge and a great passion for our business," says Arthur Dauber, chairman and CEO of AETI. "His experience in research and development is invaluable, and I expect he will continue to have a significant and positive impact on the company. I am pleased to bring his perspective to this important new position."

Hare joined the company in 1992, and his service in the energy industry spans almost 40 years.
