Innolith, a leading Swiss battery technology company, has appointed Anastasia Galochkina as an Observer on the company board. Galochkina, an investment manager with experience across Europe, will bring her expertise as an investment professional to bolster the company’s board as it moves towards commercialisation.
Galochkina brings over 15 years of experience within investment management across Russian and Swedish companies. Prior to joining Innolith, Galochkina was a Managing Director of Nafta Moskva, one of the largest private equity groups in Russia. Between 2004 and 2011, Galochkina worked as an investment professional for Vostok Nafta Investments, a Swedish listed investment fund, and served on the board of Kontakt East Holding and Tinkoff Credit Systems as fund’s representative.
The appointment of Galochkina as an observer on the Innolith board follows the announcement of new sales representatives in China and the US as well as a new Product Director. These appointments come as Innolith prepares for rapid commercialisation of its technology.
“Innolith is on the cusp of commercialisation following two decades of intensive research and development,” said Innolith CEO Konstantin Solodovnikov. “As we prepare to go to market, we are bolstering our company with experienced professionals who can help drive us toward commercial success. Anastasia’s long list of career achievements and experience across Europe makes her an ideal member of the Innolith board. We are all looking forward to working with and learning from her as we continue to grow as a company.”
