James Daly, Industrial Director North America

James Daly

"In North America, Solvay provides the unique opportunity for engineers hired through our Foundations for the Future (FFF) program to work in different businesses and in different industrial roles during a five year period. By doing so, the FFF engineers gain insight into the direction they want to pursue in their career. 

While most FFF engineers remain in an industrial role at the end of the five years, some have chosen to pursue a career in commercial or R&I. Also, as part of this program, they have the opportunity to meet and network with senior level leaders of the company, through several networking dinners organized during the first two years of their career."
