May 5, 2019 |

In France, AFYREN, which produces high-value bio-based building blocks with fermentation technologies, is further strengthening its leadership teams through three strategic appointments. After securing €60m of financing to create its industrial subsidiary AFYREN NEOXY (joint-venture with the SPI industrial projects fund operated by Bpifrance), AFYREN has appointed Jean Saint-Donat, Maxime Cordonnier and Fabrice Orecchioni.

AFYREN NEOXY: Jean Saint-Donat will lead the joint industrial subsidiary with Bpifrance’s SPI fund. Jean Saint-Donat has been appointed CEO of the joint-venture AFYREN NEOXY after heading up business development for over two years at AFYREN. This will enable the entire company to benefit from his expertise gained over the last 27 years in the industrial chemicals sector.

The parent company AFYREN has appointed two new directors to support its development and lead its future projects. Maxime Cordonnier (CFO) will be in charge of finance for AFYREN. Fabrice Orecchioni (COO) will head up operations for AFYREN. Orecchioni previously worked in the biofuels sector with Abengoa Bioenergy France and with BioAmber Inc, a US green chemicals company.
