Early Charm’s leadership team brings together the

talent and expertise to lead during this time of high growth

June 2, 2021, Baltimore, MD – In a move to accommodate its fast growth, Early Charm, a venture studio that creates, owns and operates businesses that convert science into revenue, today announced the formation of a leadership team that brings together talent and expertise to fuel product development and business growth across its stable of portfolio companies.

"We had a great management team that moved us from startup to growth stage,” said Ken Malone, Executive Officer with Early Charm. “That team reflected the heavy lifting we do to convert science into products, but it lacked the experience to handle our growing revenue streams and increasing number of strategic partnerships. The new leadership team includes members from the former management team, promotions for people who have been with us and new additions specifically brought in to address our growth needs.”

Early Charm’s new leadership team is:

Olumide Kayode - Chief Science Officer, Life Science

Elan Lowenstein - In-house Counsel

Dan Keeley - Principal

Ken Malone - Executive Officer

Kelli Booth - Executive Officer

Steve Farias – Chief Science Officer, Physical Science

Adam Van Dyke – Principal

Chris Ewing - Sales & Marketing Director

Early Charm’s announcement of its leadership team also reflects its decision earlier this year to relocate its executive and business operations into Baltimore’s innovation hub, the 1100 Wicomico Building.
