Vertically integrated lithium-ion battery recycler and manufacturer Battery Resourcers has named Kelly Kay as its newest board member.
Kay serves as executive vice president, chief financial officer and chief diversity & inclusion officer at the Toyota Research Institute (TRI).
Her appointment comes three months after the firm completed a $20 million Series B equity round, and announced the development of a commercial-scale processing facility with the capacity to produce “10,000 tons” of batteries annually.
Mike O'Kronley, CEO and director of Battery Resourcers, said: "Kelly's experience at high growth companies and her deep knowledge of business operations and strategy will help bring us to the next level in our development.”
Kay joined TRI in 2017 and has previously served as the organisation's chief operating officer.
