Jean Paul Gueneau de Mussy - CEO

As a multidisciplinary engineer, with almost 20 years of experience in Europe and Latin America, I am always looking to share and learn with colleagues and friends I have the chance to work with.

I particularly enjoy working with open and creative people with a wide range of backgrounds. By exchanging with engineers, designers,  sales to logistics people I always learn something new that is the key for solving a coming problem or an already existing one.

Materials-Innovation is a service platform where I expect to share, learn and help people to innovate with the aim to producing better, more efficient products and processes that make companies more profitable by saving the scarce resources we are left with today.
