UK start-up Breathe Battery Technologies (Breathe) has appointed Laurent Cordonnier into the role of Chief Financial Officer, effective immediately.

Earlier this year Volvo Cars announced it had partnered with Breathe on charging software, Breathe Charge, reportedly the first auto firm to get access to the start-up’s algorithm-enabled charging software for use on Volvo’s new generation fully electric cars.

Reporting directly to CEO and co-founder Dr Ian Campbell, and working closely with fellow co-founders Dr Yan Zhao (CTO) and Professor Gregory Offer (Chief Scientist), Cordonnier’s appointment comes at a pivotal time as the company positions itself for further expansion and industry leadership.

Laurent Cordonnier, Chief Financial Officer, Breathe said: ” The company’s commitment to innovation and its potential to significantly impact the automotive and consumer electronics industries is truly extraordinary.”

Dr Ian Campbell, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Breathe said: “This new appointment reflects the growing capability of Breathe to proactively address existing gaps in battery technology.”

Mr Cordonnier’s appointment also comes off the back of recent investment from Volvo Cars Tech Fund in March and a $10 million series A led by Lowercarbon Capital, one of the world’s largest climate tech investors, with participation from Speedinvest, who led Breathe’s seed round in 2019.
