Pieter Dorsman, who served as Interim CFO while the company sought a full-time candidate, will step back from Solegear’s day-to-day activities.
"As we move forward in bringing bioplastics to the mainstream, we are expanding our commercialization activities to continue Solegear’s track record of growth,” said Toby Reid, Solegear founder & CEO.
Holmes started his career at Oracle and following business school held finance positions at Walt Disney Company, Candle Corporation and Ascent Media.
“Solegear is poised for significant growth as its technologies are adopted by large, global brands who are actively seeking more sustainable solutions," said Holmes. "It’s an exciting time for the business, a time that demands outstanding execution to make the company’s vision a reality.”
