📝 What do you do at SOCOMORE?

Regional sales manager in Europe.

‍💼 How has your career progressed at SOCOMORE?

I joined the SOCOMORE Group in 2001 on the Clean3 project, and then spent 5 years at 7 d'Armor as Technical Director before moving to SOCOMORE.

I joined SOCOMORE in September 2007 to manage the start-up project in China. I travelled back and forth between Vannes and Shanghai for the first year, and then moved to Shanghai where I was in charge of setting up the subsidiary, business development and technical support. Working in a very different environment and being involved in the creation of a subsidiary were very rewarding experiences for me.

In September 2011, I changed continents and moved to Montreal following the acquisition of Magchem. I was in charge of operations at Magchem and sales for North America (Magchem in Canada & Dysol in the USA).

I have been back in France for the last 2 years and I am now the Southern European Sales then spent 5 years at 7 d'Armor Manager, which is a more mature region for SOCOMORE.

💙 What do you like about SOCOMORE ?

Working at Socomore is very rewarding. It is a very dynamic company, there is no lack of projects and everyone can get involved, make proposals and grow.

Above all, I love SOCOMORE's technical aspect, and the truly international and multicultural side of SOCOMORE which has rewarded me with enriching experiences.

Sébastien, 30 years old

🎓 Qualifications

I have a university degree, with a professional masters in Materials and Business and a Materials Masters Degree. I was initialy trained in the design and study of metal, glass, ceramics and polymers, or solid-state chemistry with an emphasis on material
resistance (mechanical and physical) to be more precise.

📝 What do you do at SOCOMORE?

I have a double hat today, but not for more than a few months I hope! I am doing a thesis at INPT (National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse), and I am also an R&D engineer in the laboratory, focused on Ine development of adhesives and sealants.

‍💼 How has your career progressed at SOCOMORE?

My career at SOCOMORE has been in three stages. I first started as a trainee on anticorrosive coatings. I discovered formulation chemistry, which I knew little about, and I was particulary attracted by both the profession and the company. Then, after a year as a design engineer, SOCOMORE offered me a position in the R&D laboratory. At the time, I was working on the development of adhesives, coatings (anti-corrosive and protective) and chemical machining masks. Two years ago, I started a thesis
focused on adhesives. At the same time, the laboratory was re-structured into four sections and I naturally inlegrated into the Adhesive and Mastics section.

💙 What do you like about SOCOMORE?

Values, people and innovative projects. Values and people because despite the company’s growth, it remains human-sized and collective, and management is always accessible. As far as innovative projects are concerned, this is one of SOCOMORE's great strengths from my point of view. The projects are very varied and technical innovation is at the heart of R&D. Unlike many places, SOCOMORE does not try to do more with less, it invests in R&D.
