His 35-plus-year career as an entrepreneur and investor has seen him venture into sustainable technology, real estate, international business, renewable energy production and medical device design and commercialization.
Most recently, as Chairman of the Board for Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation, Jeremy Feakins is investing in technology that will help solve three of the world’s most pressing problems: shortages of clean water and reliable, affordable energy, as well as introducing proven sustainable food production solutions for an ever-increasing global population.

In 1990, Jeremy Feakins founded Medical Technology & Innovations, Inc. (MTI), and served as its Chairman and CEO through 2006. MTI notably developed and built a vision-screening device known as The PhotoScreener, which was designed to detect young children’s eye disorders. Multiple peer-reviewed studies concluded that: The examination of children with severe learning disabilities for refractive errors can be extremely difficult. The MTI PhotoScreener is an effective means of screening such children and young adults for refractive errors and strabismus so that the children with these abnormalities may be targeted for a more detailed evaluation.
Under Jeremy’s leadership, MTI was successfully listed as a public company in the US. MTI distributed its PhotoScreener all over the world and acquired two companies, adding additional medical devices and products. MTI later sold the distribution rights to the PhotoScreener to a major eyewear company.
A seven-year Veteran of the British Royal Navy, Jeremy graduated from the UK’s Defence College of Logistics and Personnel Administration.
