Dr. Mark Little

Board Member

Dr. Mark Little is a board member of MTPV Power Corp.

In his 37 year career at General Electric, Mark Little served in diverse senior leadership roles in operations, research, strategic planning, joint venture development, and product management. From 2005, as GE’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Senior Vice President/Director of GE Global Research, Mark reported to the CEO and developed fundamental technologies to help GE compete and grow in every one of its businesses: energy, oil & gas, aviation, healthcare, transportation, consumer products, and financial services. Mark’s vision is now to help other organizations apply the lessons he’s learned during his years of leadership at GE by working with business leaders and boards as an advisor and mentor.

A company officer for 21 years, Mark had a two-part senior leadership career at GE managing both major lines of business and global research. Mark became only the ninth director of GE Global Research in the company’s history. His team led transformative initiatives in software, advanced manufacturing and cybersecurity, and delivered countless innovations that produced GE’s best product and service portfolio in years. Mark’s research team of over 3,600 people was from every major scientific and engineering discipline, working at nine research facilities in the USA, India, China, Germany, Brazil, and Israel. As CTO, he led some 50,000 technologists across GE. These experiences gave him a profound appreciation for diverse cultures and working styles.

Earlier in his career, as a business leader, he turned around a global business unit from $200MM annual loss to $4B annual profit—a unique achievement within GE. In doing so, he beat operating plans through every phase of the business cycle. In addition, Mark was responsible for the acquisition and integration of a bankrupt energy business, positioning it to become a $6B GE enterprise today.

Mark focuses on people and develops hard-working, motivated, self-reliant individuals who work well in teams. His high-performance teams, ranging from a dozen people to thousands, have won in their competitive marketplaces. He has a passion for building teams that “work to win.” Mark has shared this experitise by serving as a leader in the US Council of Competitiveness for 7 years. This non-profit organization brings business, labor, academic, and government leaders together to increase the United States’ economic competitiveness in the global marketplace.

Charitable work is central to Mark’s purpose. He and his wife founded and operate the Little Family Foundation, which provides a strong base for charitable pursuits. They are both active in the foundation which supports a wide variety of local community activities as well as international and veterans organizations.

Mark trained as a mechanical engineer, with a bachelor’s degree from Tufts, master’s from Northeastern, and Ph.D. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute of which Mark is a Trustee. Family life is at Mark’s core. He and his wife Terri have two adult children, with their first granddaughter having recently arrived. He is an avid book reader, a self-taught guitarist (rock, blues, jazz), a golfer, and is self-decribed as “a crazy Boston sports fan.”

Robert H. Rines

Founder of the Academy of Applied Science

Robert H. Rines

Founder of the Academy of Applied Science

Robert Rines was a founding member of MTPV and served as an advisor and board member until his passing in 2009.

Robert H. Rines achieved success in many different areas throughout his life. He was an accomplished international patent attorney, professor of law, prolific inventor, and musical composer.

Rines earned a B.S. in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he developed his first contributions to the technology of high-resolution image-scanning radar. After serving as a Signal Corps radar officer in World War II, during the time when his radar inventions were secretly being developed, Rines went on to receive a law degree from Georgetown University while serving as a patent examiner in the United States Patent Office.

Holding over 80 patents, Rines’ inventions were basic to solid state Loran boat and air navigation, to high-definition sonar scanning used in submarine detection, and the successful location of the Titanic and the Bismarc. They are used in new medical instrumentation for noninvasive ultrasound imaging of internal organs. His patents are credited by the U.S. Army Signal Corps as the basis for nearly all the high-definition image-scanning radar used to provide early warning, weapons fire control and missile detection radars used in the Persian Gulf War.

As a practicing attorney, Rines represented scores of inventors to secure legal protection for their innovations and he commercialized technology through business formation and licensing in the U.S. and throughout the world. He entrepreneured start-up businesses, including several based on his own inventions. Rines founded the Franklin Pierce Law Center, Concord, New Hampshire, in 1973 and held the position of President until 1992 when he became Chairman of the Executive Board and Overseers. A professor at the Law Center and at MIT with classes on inventions, patents, and innovation, he was earlier the Gordon McKay lecturer on patent law at Harvard. He served on the technical advisory board of the U.S. Department of Commerce and also helped establish an invention-encouraging patent system in mainland China, and earlier in Taiwan, where he completed a Ph.D. thesis at Chiao Tung University in 1972.

Rines founded and was president of the Academy of Applied Science, a nonprofit organization that conducts the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposia Program to encourage and reward high school scientific research, as well as the New Hampshire Young Inventors Program for primary schools. In 1994, Rines was inducted into the U.S. National Inventors Hall of Fame in recognition of his high-resolution image-scanning radar and sonar inventions, as well as the U.S. Army Signal Corps Wall of Fame. In 1995, the Robert H. Rines building was dedicated at the Franklin Pierce Law Center and in 1997, M.I.T. dedicated a distance-learning center in his name.
