For the past two years, Bentley has served as President and Chief Operating Officer of Inspire, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Shell New Energies US, LLC (Shell), where he has led all day-to-day operations for Inspire, including the rapid expansion of its direct-to-consumer home subscription products in the U.S.
