AdvisoryCloud Builds Highly-Specialized Advisory Board for Petram Technologies

Advisory board is comprised of executives from Fortune 500 companies in four different countries.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & NOVATO, Calif.-- Jan. 16, 2018 -- Petram Technologies selected AdvisoryCloud to find qualified executive talent to join its advisory board. Petram Technologies is an early stage engineering company that is bringing electro-hydraulic fracturing, a NASA-funded technology, to the blasting and construction industries. To help drive this ground-breaking technology solution to commercialization, Petram’s CEO, Frank Magnotti, recognized the value in building a highly-specialized advisory board and joined AdvisoryCloud to search, identify and connect with executive talent.

“Finding expert advisors that are associated with construction, demolition, mining, and oil and gas exploration industries is a big enough challenge, but finding experts that have experience in blasting as well seemed nearly impossible. I had to go beyond my network of colleagues to find qualified candidates, so I decided to work with AdvisoryCloud,” said Magnotti.

“You’ll be amazed at the level of executive talent that is interested in board and advisory work for companies at all stages of growth,” said Jonathan Aspatore, founder and CEO of AdvisoryCloud. “A multi-faceted advisory board is a vital asset in moving a company forward. We are excited to see what the future holds for Petram Technologies."

Within two months of working with AdvisoryCloud, Mr. Magnotti had four highly specialized advisors on board ready for action. These advisors are uniquely talented senior executives and experts from Fortune 500 companies in four different countries, with experience in fields such as engineering, construction, manufacturing, oil and gas, steel and metallics and sustainable energy.
