Carbios strengthens its Executive Committee
Carbios has announced the strengthening of its management team with the appointment of Martine Brisset as Senior Vice President from 1 January 2023. In this capacity, she will manage the biodegradation business and oversee the Human Resources, Legal, Regulatory, Project Management and QHSE support functions. Martine Brisset joins the Group’s Executive Committee, as does Delphine Denoizé, who also retains her role as Director of Innovation Financing, Regulatory Affairs and LCA, and whose team is being strengthened.
“Over the past six months, we have accelerated the growth of our teams in order to achieve our ambitious expansion, and I am very pleased to appoint Martine and Delphine to the Executive Committee,” commented Emmanuel Ladent, Carbios’ Chief Executive Officer. “Their proven experience, particularly within the Carbios group, will strengthen the expertise of the management team and reinforce the diversity of skills needed in this pivotal year of industrialisation and commercialisation of our technologies.
Martine Brisset, Senior Vice President of Carbios: “After managing the production of thousands of tonnes of plastic, mainly for the packaging sector, I am now focusing on reducing plastic pollution with our biodegradation and biorecycling solutions. I am very excited to take on this great and exciting challenge, which has a future and industrial meaning.”
Martine Brisset has more than 30 years of experience in senior management in major international groups in the plastic and paper packaging industry, including Amcor, Huhtamaki, Linpac and Klockner Pentaplast. Since 2021, she has held the position of General Manager of Carbiolice in order to successfully integrate this high-potential biodegradation subsidiary into the Carbios Group. In her new position as Senior Vice President of Carbios, her main mission will be to successfully deploy the biodegradation technology commercially, facilitate the internationalisation of Carbios’ activities and organise the training and recruitment of the group’s employees. With many new talents to be recruited in all areas by 2023, the Group’s attractiveness will be a major issue.
Delphine Denoizé, Director of Innovation Financing, Regulatory Affairs and LCA: “What motivates me is the satisfaction of seeing an idea become a project and then a reality. At Carbios, all our projects have a real environmental benefit and it is this issue that puts passion at the heart of my work. My arrival on the Executive Committee will enable me to support these projects even more strongly, both in terms of their structuring and financing, and also in terms of validating their regulatory compliance and environmental performance.”
After several years spent in innovation within the agricultural world, it was at the Céréales Vallées competitiveness cluster that Delphine Denoizé discovered and assisted in the creation of Carbios. She joined the company in 2016 and was one of the Group’s first twenty employees. Initially in charge of Innovation Financing and Regulation, then Project Manager for PET biorecycling, she supports the Company’s projects. Her responsibilities include French and European public funding for innovation, validation of the compliance of processes and products with various regulations around the world, as well as the assessment of their environmental impact through tools such as Life Cycle Assessment.
