Philip Chaabane, CEO, i-Tech
September 9, 2016 — Please provide a brief personal/professional background, with insight on how you’ve come to occupy the CEO seat at I-Tech.
I have a Swedish and French MSc in Engineering and have spent some six years in the aerospace industry working for Volvo Aero (today GKN) with jet engine components within product development as well as production and supply chain in general. Robust long term business plans and rigid big corporate structures were in 2009 shifted to a start-up company in the fuel cell industry (Powercell AB) with very few bits and pieces in place for the thrill of exploring new territory. Among a lot of other duties, I practiced the customer development process which really caught my interest. This was the basis also for joining I-Tech who was searching for this kind of skills to take the next steps in commercializing the project. In addition, I had had no exposure to the shipping or coating industry before and was exited to, besides the aviation and trucking industry, get a chance to learn this truly global industry. When the owners decided to refocus from regulatory research focus to market and industrial focus I got the chance to assume the position as CEO in late 2013. Since then we have been fortunate to develop the heritage into strong commercial growth and we now spend most of our time around sales and supply chain matters.
