Biography

George is Chief Commercial Officer at bio-bean, the UK’s first and only industrial recycler of spent coffee grounds. George has overall responsibility for the company’s commercial strategy and its implementation across collection of waste coffee, product development and the sales, distribution and marketing of bio-bean's solid biofuel and biochemical products.

As one of the original team George has overseen the launch of bio-bean’s first two innovative solid fuel products to market including the bestselling winter fuel, Coffee LogsTM, built a supply chain that works for thousands of independent coffee shops, transport hubs, offices and major chains like Costa Coffee across the UK, and ultimately helped recycle thousands of tonnes of waste coffee grounds and save tens of thousands of tonnes of CO2. Currently George and the team are working on the launch of bio-bean’s biochemical product for the food & beverage sector.

Prior to joining bio-bean, George spent five years as a lawyer at Ashurst LLP, specialising in project financing within the renewable energy sector.
