Marcos Ierides

Marcos joined Bax & Company in 2014. As a consultant, he supports a diverse set of clients – from small innovative SMEs to pan-European industry associations – in defining their R&I strategy, setting up collaborative research projects, and helping them commercialise the results of their research. He is mainly involved in the areas of advanced materials applied to the mobility and energy sectors, although from time to time he also deals with assignments involving a great deal of behavioural science – because we are people after all! What drives him on a day to day basis is the will to create a better and more sustainable future by contributing to the development of the right technologies, as well as their acceptance by society.

Marcos holds a Masters in Mechanical Engineering with a specialisation in Air and Ground Transportation Means from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, and a Masters in General Management from Vlerick Business School in Ghent, Belgium.Before joining Bax & Company, Marcos worked as an external consultant for a large chemical multinational, supporting them in defining and planning their Corporate Sustainability strategy, as well as a third party industrial inspector in various productions sites in Germany. During his student years, he was a member of international student NGOs, where he held various leadership positions, and was a soft skills trainer, attending many workshops around the world.

When not working on exciting Bax & Company projects, he enjoys playing his viola, violin or his oboe, and from time to time pretending to play the piano, taking pictures, doing outdoor sports, or just having a long coffee and catching up with friends. Marcos speaks Greek and English, is working on his Spanish, and has a basic understanding of French.
