Cold Chain Technologies announced that it appointed former Becton Dickinson executive Ranjeet Banerjee as its new CEO.
In addition to his new role as CEO, Banerjee will also join the Franklin, Mass.-based company’s board of directors, while its founder, Larry Gordon, has switched to a role of senior advisor, where he’ll continue to provide strategic insight through his place as a member of the board, according to a news release.
Banerjee spent the last 25 years with BD, having most recently served as a corporate executive VP and as president of the U.S. and Canada regions.
“I am excited to be joining CCT during such an exciting time in the Company’s history,” Banerjee said in the release. “As CCT continues to expand globally and accelerate the rapid growth of its reusable parcel and pallet product offering coupled with services and data-analytics capabilities, I believe that no company is better positioned to continue to lead the transformation of the cold chain industry.”
CCT’s retiring president Bob Bohne noted in the release that he is “confident” in Banerjee’s ability and expects him to combine with the company’s current talents to continue its growth.
“For more than 20 years, it has been my distinct pleasure and privilege to lead the CCT team as we have grown into a global leader, helping our customers deliver life-saving medication to the people who depend on it,” Gordon added. “I welcome Ranjeet as our new CEO, and I am confident that with his extensive experience and reputation in the medical technology industry, CCT will continue to exceed our customers’ expectations and be viewed as the partner of choice in our industry.”
CCT develops reusable and single-use thermal packaging solutions for the shipment of temperature-sensitive material, principally serving the life sciences supply chain.
