SAN FRANCISCO, July 6, 2020 — Molekule, the leader in reinventing air purification, today announced that it has appointed Jaya Rao as the next Chief Executive Officer of the company. Dilip Goswami has been appointed Chief Technology Officer and President. Co-Founders Dilip Goswami and Jaya Rao have been operating in a Co-CEO model since January of 2020, and previously Jaya was the COO. This new leadership change will help to further drive efficiency in the business, while bringing additional focus to scientific innovation, research and development.
“To help lead the company into its next chapter of innovation and growth, Jaya is stepping up as the company’s CEO. She has long been a driving force in the organization in terms of innovation and direction, and this decision was a natural progression for her and the company’s leadership team” said Chris Moody, who sits on Molekule’s Board of Directors. “She is an excellent leader for the company and a fierce advocate for the industry as a whole. We are also equally pleased to appoint Dilip Goswami to the President and CTO role. Dilip has long led the organization’s technical developments and advancements, as well as financing and investor relations. His dedication to the field of innovation is unparalleled and we are excited to continue to see the organization advance under his oversight in this new capacity.”
“It’s an honor to build a company that is determined to transform an industry and bring about solutions many incumbents have long doubted possible,” said Jaya Rao. “Leading the team at Molekule is an incredible honor and I’m committed to further enabling the teams to realize their limitless potential in commercializing our incredible technology and enabling us to bring PECO into the hands of thousands more customers.”
This announcement comes on the heels of Molekule’s most recent achievement- launching their newest commercial-grade air purification unit, Air Pro RX, with Class II medical device clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in destroying viruses and bacteria in the air by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Air Pro RX uses Molekule’s patented Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO) technology, which has demonstrated greater than 5-log, or 99.999% reduction of the RNA virus MS2 bacteriophage on the filters.
Molekule is on a mission to provide clean indoor air to everyone, everywhere. Based on more than 20 years of research and development, our patented photo electrochemical oxidation (PECO) technology destroys a whole range of tiny pollutants, including VOCs, mold, bacteria, viruses and allergens. Using science to revolutionize air purification in ways that the industry hasn’t seen, PECO sits at the crux of Molekule’s air purification technology and has been rigorously validated by third-party laboratories and continual internal testing. We believe air pollution is one of the greatest challenges of our time, as it has been attributed to seven million premature deaths a year, according to the World Health Organization. This is why we are dedicated to the fight for clean air and are actively working with scientists, doctors, sufferers, and policy-makers to offer a fundamentally different approach to air purification.
