The Maryland Tech Council has named Marty Rosendale as its new CEO, replacing Tami Howie who left the organization last month. Rosendale’s appointment is effective immediately.
Rosendale served as an adviser to the Tech Council of Maryland in 2016 while it negotiated the merger with the Chesapeake Regional Tech Council that created the Maryland Tech Council last year.
“He is an excellent choice to serve MTC as CEO,” Rene B. LaVigne, chairman of the tech council, said 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 is a veteran of the life sciences industry with more than 35 years of experience through the Newport Board Group, where he advises CEOs, board directors and executive leaders. He has served on the boards of Nuo Therapeutics and the American Red Cross, San Jose Region.
Rosendale has also launched, branded, acquired or commercialized more than 10 products and companies, the tech council said in a news release.
“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.
The tech council is a trade association represneting the technology and life sciences industries.
The tech council merger occurred under Howie’s leadership. She announced last month she was leaving to become a partner at DLA Piper.
