This recognition not only places Verv at the heart of cleantech innovation but also emphasizes the critical role of heating and cooling systems in the transition to sustainable energy. 

"With the dynamic shifts in the global energy landscape and our recent accolades in North America, it was imperative for us to strengthen our leadership team to maintain our momentum in the EMEA region," said the Founder and Chairman of Verv. "James Dearsley's appointment as CEO for EMEA is a strategic move that aligns with our mission of global growth and innovation. His proven track record in the PropTech sector and his visionary approach to the built environment are invaluable as we continue to push the boundaries of energy efficiency and sustainability." 

Dearsley's strategic vision for Verv in the EMEA region is set to complement the company's efforts in North America, ensuring a cohesive global strategy that addresses the urgent need for sustainable energy solutions. "I am thrilled to join Verv at such a crucial juncture in its journey," said James Dearsley. "The opportunity to lead the EMEA region and to contribute to a global mission of sustainable energy use is both exciting and humbling. I look forward to working with the team to drive innovation, growth, and meaningful impact in the climate control technology sector."
