PATRICK'S STORY​

Portrait collaborateur Patrick

Patrick, Business & Technology Development Manager

 

FOR PATRICK, innovating for a more sustainable world means: seeing how the energy spent every day can be put to good use and become meaningful for society.

Coming from a start-up background, Patrick has found the same freedom and adrenalin in his work at Saint-Gobain! For Patrick, who heads up a team of researchers, every day is a new opportunity to study and develop new solutions for the energy transition.

Patrick sees his work as a playground on which to conduct innovative and stimulating experiments. This is why he has spent the last few years contributing to the development of sustainable batteries for electric cars.

 

 

Through his assignments, Patrick finds every opportunity to develop his passion for subjects such as the circular economy. In addition to his scientific knowledge, he has also been able to discover new marketing skills, as his role as business manager leads him to seek out new markets for the Group. There's nothing more exciting, he says, than putting on that "pioneer’s hat" every day.
