Marc Verbenkov has been a consultant at Bax & Company for two years. Marc’s primary focus is automation within the Industry 4.0 department, where he supports clients and develops and manages projects focused on the impact of new technologies (including the adoption of collaborative robots, exoskeletons and autonomous vehicles).
Marc’s aim is to bring value to the discussion surrounding the wave of automation that we currently find ourselves in and help navigate the future trend of automation in industry, society and the public domains.
Marc also hosts a weekly podcast where he interviews leading tech experts, CEOs, and researchers from across the world to explore how emerging automation technologies are impacting our society, with a specific focus on jobs. Check out the podcast episodes here: https://automatedpodcast.org/
Prior to joining Bax & Company, Marc collaborated on development-based projects with international NGOs in North, Central and Latin America. The passion he developed during these projects for the socioeconomic repercussions of emerging technologies led him towards freelance consulting with startups and SMEs focusing on adopting new technologies in Canada.
With his Canadian roots, Marc is an avid multi-day trekker with the goal of finishing the GR-11 route that traverses the Pyrenees, but also practices partner acrobatics and enjoys the occasional scuba dive.
Marc speaks English fluently, French and Spanish conversationally.
