The Maryland Tech Council, the state’s largest trade association supporting the technology and life sciences sectors, announced Wednesday that it has appointed Martin “Marty” Rosendale, a veteran of the life sciences industry, as its new CEO.
Rosendale assumes the position immediately, succeeding Tami Howe, who had led the organization since its creation in 2017 but stepped down in April.
“He is an excellent choice to serve [Maryland Tech Council] as CEO,” said Rene B. LaVigne, the council’s chairman and president and CEO of Iron Bow Technologies, in a statement. “He knows the organization intimately, understands the business sectors of our membership as well as the constituents’ focus, has a visionary mindset, and brings extensive C-level experience.”
Rosendale most recently has been a partner with the Newport Board Group, a corporate executive advisory service. Until last October, he was CEO of Selnova LLC, a Baltimore firm he founded to assist biotechnology and medical device companies trying to commercialize a product. Before that he was CEO of Nuo Therapeutics, a Gaithersburg biomedical firm.
“I am honored and excited to accept the appointment as CEO of the Maryland Tech Council and for the opportunity to lead the team that has built this amazing organization and supported our more than 450 members across the life sciences and technology sectors in Maryland,” Rosendale said in a statement.
