Event description

Description

The Bachelors of Arts in Management and the Sustainability Series continue delivering in 2020 great topics with amazing speakers. Next February 19, Mark Kirby, President/CEO at Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) will join us!

Mr Kirby joined CHFCA as President and CEO in August, 2019. A mechanical engineer with an honours degree from the University of British Columbia, he has led the commercialization of many clean technologies, including hydrogen energy technologies.

Mr Kirby was a founder and CEO of S2G BioChemicals Inc., a Vancouver-based industrial biotech company 2nd-generation technology for sustainable bioproducts. Over a 10-year period, Mr. Kirby secured investment and strategic partnerships that enabled it to develop into a leading bioproducts company. In 2018, S2G was acquired by Fortress Global Industries, a Canadian forest products company, becoming Fortress Advanced Bioproducts.

Prior to starting S2G, Mark led business and technology development, operations and commercialization in the food, industrial gases, fuel cell and forest products industries with fuel cell leader Ballard Power, Canadian hydrogen technology start-up QuestAir Technologies and global industrial gases company Praxair.

Highlights include leading Ballard’s corporate development activities during the formation of AFCC from Ballard’s automotive fuel cell business; managing Questair’s business development partnerships with ExxonMobil and other key players; reengineering North American industrial gases logistics with Praxair, and Praxair’s Chairman’s award for driving the growth of oxygen bleaching to substitute for chlorine in the global pulp and paper sector.

Mr. Kirby is married with two daughters and lives in beautiful North Vancouver, (close to the mountain biking trails he loves).
