With more than 20 years of experience, Garnier has managed growth-driven multi-national businesses and teams, including work in technical product development and positioning, sales management, market and pricing strategies, and marketing initiatives. She will draw on this broad expertise in support of ChemQuest’s Business Strategy & Transformation and M&A Advisory Services pillars.

Garnier began her career as a development chemist with Bostik. She rose to the level of technical business development manager with the company before moving to positions of increasing responsibility with OMNOVA (acquired by Synthomer in 2020) and Addmaster UK Ltd. She most recently served as director of corporate development, Europe, for Moleaer Inc., a developer of industrial-scale nanobubble technology.
