Art Castañares is deal-maker, putting his 25 years of experience in politics, finance, marketing, and emerging technologies together to deliver innovative projects, including on-site solar energy generation, new biomass to fuels technology, and mass deployment of synthetic turf.
His career has included more than 13 years working in government, running dozens of political campaigns, and, now, growing a diverse clean energy company in California, Nevada, and Texas. Art maintains that the secret to closing deals is over-coming the “No”.
His newest venture, turning biomass waste into clean fuels, exemplifies Art’s out-of-the-box approach to creating business opportunities. He credits his ignorance in new fields for having led to some of his greatest successes.
