Ryan Melsert appointed CEO
The appointment of Melsert, who was the Chief Technology Officer, is part of the company’s leadership transformation to prioritize its tech development and transformation initiatives and position American Battery metals for growth.
Outgoing CEO Doug Cole said, “Ryan and I have been working together closely over the past two years to set the direction of this company and to help evolve it to where it is today. Over the past few months Ryan has increasingly taken over day-to-day leadership responsibilities including setting long-term company strategies, leading investor presentations, developing high-value strategic partnerships, and leading the recruiting and hiring of company executives. It is in the best interests of the company to formalize this leadership transition and to appoint him as company CEO, and I look forward to supporting this succession in every way needed going forward.”

Meslert commented, “It has been a privilege to work alongside Doug, our independent board members, employees, and other key stakeholders over the past two years to build this strong foundation upon which we will further accelerate our growth. We have an unprecedented set of tailwinds behind us as our technologies simultaneously address the critical needs of mitigating global climate change and the environmental impact of conventional battery metals mining, of producing lower cost battery metals to increase the penetration of electric storage solutions throughout the market, and of increasing domestic production of battery metals to improve security of supply and national security interests.”
In addition, Meslert said that the company is committed to solving challenges within the primary battery metals and lithium-ion battery recycling fields. Therefore, the board will convene a shareholder meeting to nominate directors to support the growth strategy and commercialization.
