As reported on PRNewswire, Sam Tabar has been named COO of FullCycle Energy Fund. Founded in 2013, FullCycle Energy Fund was formed for the express purpose of financing and owning projects aimed at revolutionizing waste management via the conversion of a very expensive environmental issue into clean fuel for powering communities worldwide. Their ultimate goal is the investment in environmentally friendly and less expensive fuel that comes from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). Their plan is to accomplish this lofty goal via the retrofitting and replacement of conventional electric generation plants that utilize costly and highly polluting fuel.

As Chief Operating Officer, his responsibilities will include leading a team that will be delivering on the company’s mission to get away from fuels that are high in both cost and pollution. This will enable a move toward more environmentally friendly fuel sources that are also lower in cost.

Now a current New York State Bar member, he was also once the Columbia Business Law Journal editor with a BA with honors from Oxford University and a Columbia Law School Masters of Law degree.

In addition, Sam Tabar is a successful private venture capitalist and was one of the initial SheThinx and Tribute investors.
