OpenHydro, the Irish based tidal energy company and part of DCNS Energies, has appointed Patrick Gougeon as its new Chief Executive Officer. The appointment signals the company’s ongoing drive towards commercialization of its tidal technology and follows the launch of DCNS Energies, a subsidiary of the DCNS Group which recently secured €100 million in investment.
 
Gougeon joined OpenHydro at the start of January 2017, having previously held the position of CEO of Colibrys, a high-technology industrial company based in Switzerland. He is an engineer from the French Ecole Centrale de Lille and holds an MBA from the HEC School of Management in Paris.
 
With over 20 years’ experience in delivering global technological projects and transforming organizations in the industrial sector, Gougeon’s senior management career to date has encompassed roles including consultancy in strategy and organization in McKinsey & Company, as well as change management, international business development, industrial and program management as a successful executive in the Thales and Safran groups.
 
Operating out of OpenHydro’s Dublin offices and its Technical Centre in Greenore, Co. Louth, Gougeon heads up a business that has strong plans to expand both locally and internationally.
