Form Energy, a company enabling the future of the electric grid, has appointed Judith Michelle Williams as VP, People. Hanold Associates‘ Katrina Prospero and Sandra Peña led the search for this role based in the California Bay Area.
Form Energy is developing a new type of battery which can cost-effectively store energy for multiple days. This technology could eventually allow for the creation of a 100% renewable, reliable, carbon-free grid. The company was formed in 2017, and has raised $125 million in funding across three rounds to date, including a Series C in November of 2020 that raised $76 million from nine different investors. Currently at 75 employees and growing, the company’s headquarters are in Somerville, Massachusetts, with an additional growing presence in the Bay Area.
Judith joins Form Energy from SAP, joining as the company’s Global Head of People Sustainability and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer before transitioning to SVP, Global Human Resources. In her new role, Judith will report directly to CEO Mateo Jaramillo and build an enterprise-wide human capital strategy and HR function for the company.
