Battery material innovator CarbonScape announced Wednesday the appointment of Vincent Ledoux-Pedailles, Jay Kim, and Darryl Robinson to its leadership team, spearheading the next stage of the company’s growth.

Vincent Ledoux-Pedailles joins CarbonScape as the new chief commercial officer, having previously served as CCO of Vulcan Energy Resources and executive director of corporate strategy at Infinity Lithium.

Ledoux-Pedailles will lead CarbonScape’s global commercial strategy, drawing on his track record for strong commercial outcomes in the battery technology space. With an initial focus on European investors and offtakers, he will be based in France.

Jay Kim joins as the new chief product officer. He brings extensive leadership expertise in the sector from his time at Northvolt and Samsung SDI. Utilizing his depth of battery science knowledge acquired over the last two decades, Kim will be driving CarbonScape’s technological innovation and will be based in South Korea.

Darryl Robinson joins as the new chief financial officer, bringing over 20 years of experience spanning the high-growth technology sector and large corporations. Robinson will be leading CarbonScape’s financial strategy as it commercializes biographite and scales production to meet skyrocketing demand.

Last year, CarbonScape received an $18 million investment to jumpstart the commercialization of biographite in Europe and the US, enabling cleaner lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles and grid-scale energy storage. The new hires will play an important role in facilitating CarbonScape’s commercialization plans as the company scales, it said.
