Business Development Manager
Gil Morieras, a chemical engineer (Lyon, France) and general manager (Fontainebleau, France) who served global plastics industries in various sales and business development roles. He interacts and negotiates with large international corporations for many years and is looking forward to use his experience for the benefit of Zeopore. Gil will predominantly focus on commercializing Zeopore's unprecedented technologies in emerging circular applications and opportunities in sustainable refining and chemical industries.
On the geographical side, Gil's career gradually extended from France to Europe, Americas, Middle East and beyond. Along the way, he has amongst other parties worked for Sabic, Omya, Multibase, Ampacet, and Kronos. The past years he worked for Borouge, a JV between Borealis and ADNOC, allowing him to cover the whole (petro)chemical supply chain from refining, over base chemicals to end product, truly a flying start for the Zeopore assignment.
The common thread for Gil is maximising value to customers while bringing to market products that protect the planet, people and business profitability. He has always developed strong relationships with prospects and customers while taking on roles in business development, sales and marketing. Thinking out of the box is essential to capitalize on emerging commercial paths, even more so as an innovation manager.
Zeopore is no stranger for Gil. CEO Kurt Du Mong had previously crossed paths while Gil worked on a Crude-to-Chemical initiative and while Gil had his sights on plastics recycling. So Gil am aware that Zeopore delivers essential components that increase the performance and sustainability of catalytic processes in established and emerging markets alike. When considering the latter, he sees immense potential for Zeopore in the rapidly developing chemical plastic recycling, biomass conversion and carbon capture applications. Gil is impressed about the technical excellence of Zeopore and is excited to drive the commercialization of zeolite based catalysts internationally."
