Gurit has appointed Dr Emiliano Frulloni as CTO and member of the executive committee.

Dr Frulloni has many years of technology and leadership experience in the advanced composites industry and holds an MBA from Manchester Business School and a PhD in Materials Science and Technology from University of Perugia, Gurit says. Dr Frulloni joins Gurit from Solvay where he holds the position of global r&d director composite product development.

Dr Damian Bannister, current CTO of Gurit, will take on the position of director of innovation composite materials where he will reportedly focus on the development and improvement of the company’s base formulations as well as new material technologies for Gurit’s prepreg and formulated products ranges.

‘I am very excited to appoint Emiliano as our new Group CTO and happy to retain Damian with his rich know-how as director innovation composite materials as the combined innovation power will make Gurit stronger in the market,’ said Rudolf Hadorn, CEO of Gurit.
