Skeleton appoints Liedtke as SVP business development

Ultracapacitor maker Skeleton Technologies appointed Michael Liedtke as senior vice president of business development in early August.

Liedtke has been involved in developing ultracapacitor technology for more than 12 years with companies such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

Between 2006 and 2013 he spearheaded the growth of Maxwell Technologies’ ultracapacitor business during which the firm enjoyed a 50% rise in revenues, a spokesperson for Skeleton Technologies said.

“He will head up the business development team, supporting the creation of new product lines and the building of strategic alliances and integrated partnerships on an international level,” said the official.

“Skeleton has developed offerings that can make a real commercial difference across sectors such as automotive, heavy transportation, clean energy and grid energy storage,” said Liedtke.
