Jean-Baptiste Moranta has been promoted to vice-president, sales, marketing and operations, with Inortech Chimie Inc., of Terrebonne, QC. He is now responsible for the day-to-day business but will continue his sales responsibilities. Jean-Marc Pigeon, Nortech’s president, said that Moranta was given progressively more responsibility within the company after a discussion a few years ago, when they compared their individual visions for Inortech. “I began giving him more responsibilities on the day-to-day operations,” Pigeon says. “He took those new responsibilities and improved on them, as he had with the sales department.” Inortech supplies broad range of additives and chemicals. It is focused on the coatings, inks, adhesives and plastics markets.
