Novele appoints Charles Conwell III as Chief Executive Officer
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – July 1, 2022 - Novele today announced that Charles Conwell III has joined the company as Chief Executive Officer effective immediately. Conwell succeeds AJ Glassberg Co-founder and CEO, who will remain Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Charles Conwell comes to Novele after nearly two decades as a senior executive in the commercial real estate sector.

“I started looking for the right person to take over as CEO almost a year ago. Charles’ breadth of understanding of not only the needs of urban infrastructures, but the challenges that stakeholders in these environments face when thinking about renewables and energy storage was apparent,” Glassberg said. “I look forward to working with him on strengthening our supply chain, US manufacturing, and delivering Energy Board into the global market.”
