Her qualifications, extensive industry experience and her proven success in coaching and motivating teams to achieve company objectives make her the ideal person to lead the further development and expansion of Bluesign.”

Dumain said, “I'm honoured and grateful to the bluesign board for the opportunity to lead this exceptional organisation of innovative, dedicated, and talented professionals. Bluesign technologies' passion for creating innovative textile processes to reduce environmental impact is a perfect synergy with my experience and passion. This is a terrific opportunity that any leader would welcome. I am also thankful and indebted to Patagonia for providing me the incredible years there and the foundation allowing me to take this next step. (GK)
