Specialist in water treatment BIO-UV Group has announced the appointment of Laurent-Emmanuel Migeon as the new Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. He will replace Benoît Gillmann, who founded the company in 2000.
Mr Gillmann said: “After more than 22 years of service dedicated to the development of BIO-UV Group, I have decided to sell my BIO-UV Group shares to focus on other projects and my family. I am proud of what we have achieved over the last two decades and thank all those past and present members of the BIO-UV Group family who have been key to that success. I am leaving the company in very capable hands.”
Mr Migeon joined BIO-UV Group in 2018 as Chief Operating Officer and Deputy General Manager, and for the past five years, has co-managed the company with Mr Gillmann. He contributed to the company’s IPO on the Euronext Paris exchange and the fundraising which was key for the acquisitions of Triogen holdings and Corelec.
Mr Migeon said: “It is an honour to have the opportunity to continue to represent BIO-UV Group in its next phases of growth while maintaining the high standards that have been the company’s hallmark since its creation by Benoît Gillmann more than 20 years ago.”
BIO-UV Group designs, manufactures and markets ultraviolet, ozone, salt electrolysis and AOP (advanced oxidation process) technologies for water disinfection and treatment.
