Cotes Company Update:

After more than 11 years as CEO and owner of Cotes, Thomas Rønnow, has chosen to resign from his position as CEO to further pursue his passion for development and innovation as the Business Development Manager at Cotes. The new CEO from November 1, 2021, will be Martin Brøchner-Mortensen.

“A lot has happened with Cotes since I took over the company after my father in 2009. The industry and the world requires constant technological development and we must keep up to meet the challenges of climate change. There is a growing demand for greener energy and a huge transition to electric vehicles, both of which Cotes provides dry-air solutions for. We help in the optimal operations of wind turbines, and now we are stepping up the production of ultradry-air solutions for low carbon sustainable Li-ion battery production with completely new technology in our field,” Thomas Rønnow points out.

“Martin and I have known each other for more than 20 years, both privately and professionally. I have great confidence and knowledge of his abilities. With the board's independent approval of him and his abilities, I am therefore very comfortable leaving the CEO position to him,” explains owner Thomas Rønnow.

Martin Brøchner-Mortensen (50) will take up his position on November 1, 2021, and will leave his position as Group Senior Vice President in the software company Systematic.

"After more than 20 years in the same company, I would like to try new challenges. Cotes is an exciting company and global market leader of sustainable dehumidifiers in fast-growing market segments such as wind energy and lithium-ion battery production for electric cars. The company makes a big difference in fighting climate challenges and I look forward to being a part of that," Martin Brøchner-Mortensen states.
