Long-duration battery manufacturer ESS Tech Inc has welcomed Alexi Wellman to the company’s board of directors, and chair of its Board Audit Committee.
Wellman brings knowledge and experience in financial management, accounting and corporate governance to the US iron flow battery firm’s board, including extensive experience in providing financial oversight to numerous public companies.
Wellman serves on the board of directors and is an audit committee and compensation committee member of transportation and logistics firm Werner Enterprise, and blank-cheque company Bilander Acquisition Corp.
Previously, she has served on the board of directors of Endurance International Group, Yahoo Japan, TWC Tech Holdings II Corp., and Nebula Caravel Acquisition Corp.
Eric Dresselhuys, ESS CEO, said: “We are very pleased to have Alexi join our team at a key moment in ESS’ history as a publicly traded company. Her experience will prove invaluable as we scale up production, expand our global sales network, and execute on our growth plans.”
Last month, ESS Inc and publicly traded special purpose acquisition company ACON S2 Acquisition Corp completed a business combination resulting in ESS becoming a publicly listed company.
