"We are extremely excited to welcome on board Martin Anderlind as the new CEO of Altris."

Says Torbjörn Sternsjö, Chairman of the Board at Altris AB.

"Sodium-ion battery technology is an immense business opportunity and we strongly believe that Altris has a huge potential, with its leading-edge technology, to grasp an extensive share of the global market. In order to succeed it is absolutely crucial for Altris to have the right CEO at the helm to lead and develop the team. Martin’s business background and competence make him absolutely perfect for the role".

As the new CEO of Altris, Anderlind makes the jump from his previous appointment in the lithium-ion battery industry, to now work in the rapidly growing sodium-battery world. Anderlind first joined the Swedish battery developer and manufacturer Northvolt at the company’s inception. In the almost six years since then, he has led teams across the business development, communications, brand, and talent divisions.

Outside of the battery industry, Anderlind is a serial entrepreneur. His first successful enterprise was IT company Netsolutions, which capitalised on the early opportunities of the internet – and more recently he co-founded and led Itrim, the international chain of health and wellness centers. Anderlind was educated at Uppsala University and has served as a visiting fellow at Harvard and MIT.

"The European automotive industry has fully embraced electrification, and Northvolt is playing a central role in that process - so it’s safe to say that the company is in good hands"

says Martin Anderlind, CEO of Altris AB. ‘It’s time for me to now lend a helping hand in the next missing piece of the puzzle needed to further speed up the energy transition – sodium-ion batteries. These batteries are not only a safer, longer lasting, cheaper, and greener alternative – but they can also be made out of almost unlimited and readily available raw materials.
