I am Xavier Vigor, best known as the CTO of Air Liquide, a French company specialized in the production and distribution of industrial gasses. And I'm here to answer any questions related to the industry, or what we're most excited about, green hy...
I began my professional career in 1988 within the Air Liquide Group. I've successively held positions in research and development, sales, engineering and management, always in innovative fields. I've been the Managing Director of the Chicago and the Loges-en-Josas (near Paris) Research Centers, of small standard production plants, in Engineering, and in industrial IT. Recently, I was the Managing Director of Air Liquide advanced Technologies in Grenoble.
I graduated with a masters in engineering from from École Centrale des Arts et Manufactures. Today, I am the Vice-President of Technologies (CTO) and Industrial Manager of the Air Liquide World Business Line for Hydrogen Energy.
