MONTREAL, CANADA: BioAmber Inc said that it has appointed the current chief operating officer (COO), Fabrice Orecchioni as its new president, effective immediately. 

He will succeed Jean-Francois Huc who has resigned as the company’s president and CEO.

In his role as COO over the past four years, Fabrice has overseen the construction, start-up and operation of the manufacturing plant in Sarnia and the management of the Mitsui JV. Fabrice has also been extensively involved in the negotiations with CJ CheilJedang for the proposed China JV.
