Three changes are being implemented in the executive leadership team:
Masanori King Takee was promoted to Chief Technology Officer. In his new role, Takee will continue to lead the company’s software engineering, artificial intelligence and machine learning activities. One of his primary goals is to reinforce Know Labs’ competencies in data science, which are critical for refinement of the Bio-RFID algorithm and delivery of a final product that can be used for clinical trials and the FDA clearance application. Takee joined Know Labs in 2018 as one of the company’s first employees and brings 20 years of experience creating software for technology and healthcare startups. Takee has been a founding team member of five startups, including Cequint, Dwango and TurboPatent, two of which remain operational today and three achieved a successful exit.
Jessica English joins the Know Labs team as Chief Marketing Officer. She will lead the company’s marketing and communications efforts in preparation for a commercial launch. English brings more than 15 years of experience leading brand, marketing and communications strategy for companies across a full range of life stages and industries, including Health Technology, SaaS, and Gaming. Previously, she was the Vice President of Brand at Oura, a leading health wearable technology company, where she created an identity, position and integrated marketing strategy, in addition to building the company’s standing in the scientific and research communities. Before Oura, English led the first brand marketing efforts for Dropbox and supported the company’s entrance into the public market. She most recently served as Vice President of Marketing at NZXT, a PC gaming hardware company, leading its entrance into new product categories and building a competitive position for the brand.
Leo Trautwein, previously Know Labs’ Chief Marketing Officer, is now Chief Commercial Officer.

“I’m excited for 2023,” Erickson said. “These changes to our leadership team will allow us to accelerate our progress and collaborate more, while eliminating silos. I have strong trust in this team and believe each one of them can deliver what we need. I welcome Jess to the team and congratulate the others for their contributions and great work performed to date. We are a very collaborative team working toward a common objective, to transform the medical diagnostics industry, and I’m confident we can get there.
“Our most important goal for the year is to have our technology externally validated. We will achieve this through a heavy focus on data science and algorithm refinement, clinical development and trials, and partnerships with leading medical research institutions for additional data collection and accuracy validation,” continued Erickson.
In addition to these executive changes, Know Labs will continue to accelerate progress with world-class development partners in data science, sensor technology and hardware design, as well as bringing on a Technical and Scientific advisory board.
