Rock Tech Appoints Esther Bahne as Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer

Vancouver, BC, Canada

Rock Tech Lithium Inc. is pleased to announce that Esther Bahne has joined the Company’s management team as Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer.

Esther Bahne brings more than 16 years of experience in the automotive industry, previously working at BMW Group, where she served as the Global Head of Strategy and Innovation and Chief Marketing Officer at MINI, being responsible for the entire relaunch of the MINI brand, and at Audi AG, where she led the company’s Social Innovation practice and established its corporate sustainability strategy.

„We are thrilled to have Esther join our fast-growing, high caliber team,“ said Dirk Harbecke, Chairman of Rock Tech. „Not only does she bring a wealth of experience and intricate knowledge of the automotive industry, she’s also an accomplished strategist and visionary with a track record of leading interdisciplinary, diverse teams with operations around the world.“

“I am excited to join Rock Tech on its mission to fuel the green energy revolution. Our future life is based on batteries – from mobile phones to cars. But if we want to rely on battery power to transform both our energy and mobility sectors and battle climate change, we need to ensure we produce them sustainably. Rock Tech is a pioneer in this effort, and I will support them in becoming the first closed-loop lithium company world-wide.”

As the Company’s Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer, Esther Bahne will drive Rock Tech’s sustainability agenda, help it develop its recycling business, and redeem its promise as a cleantech company zeroing out emissions, one lithium battery at a time.
