Scientist, founder, inventor, magician, Jim Lee goes by many different titles (he wouldn’t approve of the last one, although it’s quite appropriate). But the one title that seems the most fitting is leader. A West Point graduate and instructor, Jim served in the United States Army and earned his Masters of Chemical Engineering from the University of Virginia.
After retiring from the Army as a Major, Jim turned his attention to the private sector, becoming one of the most sought-after consultants among Fortune 500 companies in the matter of anti-terrorism.
Following September 11, the City of New York hired Jim to lead the design and implementation of a vast and comprehensive network of sensors across the city. It was during this experience that Jim discovered a glitch in the matrix of sensors. While chemical and radiological sensors abounded, there was an absence of ones designed to detect biological agents in real-time, especially when the introduction of those agents goes unnoticed.
And so, it began…Jim’s odyssey to design a technologically cutting-edge system that would attack microbes continuously, safely, and proactively. The result is Synexis, the sole developer of patented technology that creates and disperses DHP™ (Dry Hydrogen Peroxide) to help reduce the presence of microbes in indoor spaces around the clock.
