Clean water is a necessity for the oil and gas industry where process improvement, government regulations and environmental concerns make access to clean water more critical every day. MYCELX is doing things no one else can do, taking oil-free water to new levels. MYCELX is helping to solve the industry's toughest problems.
JOHN E. MANSFIELD, SR.
May 22, 1932 – December 27, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Co-Founder and Chairman Emeritus, John E. Mansfield, Sr.
Mr. Mansfield was a true visionary and entrepreneur whose passion was in finding or creating new ideas and bringing them to fruition. His journey with MYCELX began when a unique technology was brought to him by Hal Alper. He immediately saw the possibilities for industry and co-founded the business with Hal in 1994. As with many of his previous start-ups, he wholeheartedly committed to its commercialization and success. In 2011, during his tenure as Chairman of MYCELX, he set in motion the listing on the AIM exchange of the London Stock Exchange, from which the funds were used to pursue international market opportunities, which are the basis of the company today.
Before co-founding MYCELX, Mr. Mansfield started Mansfield Oil Company, which still operates 62 years later. In the mid-1960s he opened unattended, automated gas stations, years ahead of others and in the late 1970s he started a chain of retail gasoline and convenience stores around the southern United States growing Kangaroo Food Stores into an 800 employee operation. Throughout the years, given his vast entrepreneurial experience, he mentored countless others who came to him for guidance and advice.
His leadership provided clear insight, a disciplined financial approach, forthrightness, and immense energy. He will be sorely missed by our company and all who were fortunate enough to know him personally or in business.
