CEO presso Marstrom Composites AB

Linkedin Envelope

Actually I am serving MARSTROM Composite AB as CEO with the target to establish MARSTROM as market reference for design, small and large scale production and assembly of complex composite parts.

I also act as reviewer for the European Commission to evaluate projects in the domain of aerospace, nanotechnologies and composites, I am also independent consultant in the domain of EU founded projects and anti-ballistic protections and I am co-owner of i-Starter (ideas accelerator).

Just before I was CTO for Future Fibres (composite rigging, masts and booms for sail-yachts).

Before I was Material & Process Composite Manager at Safran-Techspace Aero as responsible for the development of composite components for aircraft engines. Before I was R&D manager for Nanocyl (Belgium) in the domain of nanotechnology where I have been also coordinator of EU founded project for the development of intelligent textiles (Inteltex). I was Division Manager for FTS (Italy) in the domain of composite and anti-ballistic protections. I was visiting student during an internship at the University of Michigan (USA) in the domain of transgenic plants. I hold 7 patents in composites and nanotechnologies.

During my career I had the opportunity to be involved in the most advanced domains: bio-engineering, composites, nanotechnology and aerospace and in different roles: management, R&D, project coordination and marketing.
