She will also be working closely with the CEO to ensure the proper practices and processes are in place to set actionable strategies and support business planning and goal delivery.

Raj Claire is taking over the role of CFO and will be responsible for overseeing all finance-related activities including financial reporting, internal controls, budgeting and business planning.
Claire has over a decade of experience in the finance sector, starting her career at Deloitte. She has since served in advanced finance and account roles in the energy and resources sector.
Considered a highly collaborative team leader and builder, Claire will also help support R&D and Operations efforts at the company.
“We are thrilled to welcome Raj and Jamie to the Hillcrest senior management team,” Don Currie, CEO of Hillcrest Energy Technologies (CSE:HEAT, OTCQB:HLRTF) said in the press release. “They both bring solid renewable energy, sustainability and capital markets experience, matched with equally impressive collaborative leadership qualities that unite cross-functional teams and drive organizational transformation."
He continued: “As we expand our tech-driven clean energy pursuits and benefit from an increased market cap, having the right people at the helm to lead operations and finance is essential.”
