A West Point graduate, Guy brings significant corporate expertise to Catalyzer that nicely balances the military experiences of many of our facilitators. He was particularly well suited to support our business development efforts, and has supported us in that role over the last two years. In addition to his Bachelor’s Degree from the United States Military Academy (1982), Guy received a Master of Business Administration from the MIT Sloan School of Management in 1994.Leaving uniform in 1987, Mr. Hatch began a distinguished career in business. His first opportunity, for Ethicon Endo-Surgery and Ethicon, Inc. (Johnson & Johnson Companies), involved Guy leading teams and introducing manufacturing and management processes to produce Class II and III medical devices for surgical use. Subsequently, and over an eight-year period while at United Technologies Corporation (UTC), Guy oversaw Product Development and Manufacturing, led the Management of Technology, United Technologies Research Center (UTRC), graduated to become the Director, Financial Planning and Analysis at the corporate-level, and was again promoted to serve as General Manager, Residential Business, UTC Fuel Cells. These UTC experiences offered Guy rich experience in manufacturing, supply chain management, Lean manufacturing, human resources/talent management for high potentials, and business strategy.
In 2002, Mr. Hatch left UTC to join the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology (CCAT) as its Chief Operating Officer and Director of Innovation and Enterprise. In this capacity, he was additionally responsible to serve as the Executive Director for the Connecticut Regional Innovation Center. During his time at CCAT, he led efforts that resulted in $30M in federal funding, founded the Connecticut Business Incubator Network, directed Connecticut’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, and led an industry panel focused on fuel cells, an industry Connecticut had begun to establish prominence in over preceding years.
His last corporate engagement was with On Site Gas Systems, Inc., where Mr. Hatch was the Owner and Chief Executive Officer. On Site’s business involved manufacturing oxygen and nitrogen generating equipment for myriad applications worldwide. During Guy’s tenure, the company was awarded two patents, won nine consecutive Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards, was named to the U.S. Fast 500 (2007 and 2009), received the Connecticut Quality Improvement Award (CQIA) Platinum Innovation Price (2008), received the 2010 NIOSH Bullard-Sherwood Research-to-Practice Mine Safety Intervention Award, and received the 2011 Connecticut and New England Region Small Business Administration Exporter of the Year (2011). He sold his On Site interests in 2014 and retired to Colorado with his family. Guy is now energetically engaged in Catalyzer Leadership’s expanding business, and an active participant in our programs.
