Patrick’s career path                                 

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.
