Chris Jackson, CEO of Protium said: “The profile of hydrogen as part of the solution to driving down emissions has rapidly accelerated of late, and so too has the demand for consultancy and project support. I am delighted to be welcoming Grant and Bhavita to the team at such an important time both for Protium and the sector as a whole.”
Commenting on his appointment, Grant Myers said: “The role of hydrogen in the net-zero mix is finally getting the profile it deserves. I am delighted to have joined a business at the cutting-edge of this space and look forward to working with Chris and the team on a wide-range of projects that will deliver huge impact in the months and years ahead.”
Bravita Lacmane added: “This is one of the most exciting sectors to be in right now and I am thrilled to be joining the team. With so much potential from hydrogen, the interest in our work is only going to increase and I look forward to being a part of the Protium growth story in the coming years.”
