HZO Faces: Sean Clancy, Ph.D.


Words like fluorescence, anti-microbial and organic synthesis may sound foreign to commoners, but to HZO’s Sean Clancy these terms come up regularly in dinner table conversation. In HZO Faces we take a peek behind the lab coat and into the work and life of our very own head Chemist.

Sean’s journey to HZO has him crisscrossing the country from the Florida panhandle to the glamour of Los Angeles. In fact he has lived in all continental US time zones, while fine tuning his chemistry knowledge and acumen. Sean studied at 4 different universities, ultimately earning his Ph.D in Chemistry from the University of Southern California, and therein it lies, our very own trojan horse.

His technical work has proven invaluable in helping HZO accelerate its competitive advantages to protect electronics from

damage caused by dust, liquids and corrosion. Top of his priorities, Sean focuses on constantly creating and expanding HZO’s breakthrough technology. We are particularly in awe when Sean reverse engineers competitive chemistry and makes it easy for our entire staff to understand.

It goes without saying, Sean’s a smarty, and we couldn’t be happier that he is on the HZO team.
