Effective immediately, Jaya Rao, Co-Founder and former Chief Operating Officer of Molekule, will assume the role of Co-CEO alongside Dilip Goswami. Molekule has an aggressive roadmap outlined for the next year and this change will provide increased scope and broader capacity for the organization, ensuring we remain laser focused on delivering against our goals.
We are also excited to announce that with this change, Jim Kronik, former SVP of Operations and Engineering at Molekule, will be promoted to Chief Operating Officer (COO). Jim has been with the organization since June of 2018, leading supply chain optimization, hardware manufacturing operations, and most recently, taking on the responsibility of our software business. Jim has a deep understanding of the business and a broad leadership background. Jim spent over 6 years at Apple, leading supply chain operations and strategic commodity sourcing, in addition to time at Juniper Networks and Siemens Medical Solutions, among others. He is a world-class operator and we are fortunate to have him in a role of this nature. Reporting to Jim will remain our Operations, Hardware and Software Engineering teams. Customer Service will now report to Jim as well.
