Moltex’s reactor concept and design has benefited from critical and constructive input from dozens of the world’s leading scientists in the field.
Moltex’s Board of Directors is made up of the following individuals:
José Emeterio Gutiérrez has served as President and CEO at Westinghouse Electric Company between 2016 and 2019 and as Senior Vice President of Nuclear Fuel between 2012 and 2016. In his more than 35 years of experience in the nuclear industry, he has worked in every country that operates nuclear power plants. José’s experience in nuclear fuel and in leading a reactor vendor developing multiple complex designs across many jurisdictions will be invaluable to Moltex.
Ian Scott is Chief Scientist at Moltex. He and John Durham co-founded Moltex Energy Limited in 2012, bemused by how nuclear energy had gone from being “too cheap to meter” to too expensive to afford, and determined to remedy this flaw. Ian attended Cambridge University to study nuclear physics but was seduced during his first year by the excitement of the biological sciences and made his career in this field. He was Chief Scientist at Unilever PLC for 25 years, and left to found Synergy Biosystems, an entrepreneurial drug discovery company, before turning his attention back to nuclear.
Xabier Ruiz has been the Nuclear Services Director at IDOM Engineering Consulting & Architecture since 2014. Under his charge, the IDOM Nuclear Services department has worked on more than 300 projects. Xabier is responsible for doubling the department’s client list and activities, gaining a presence in 21 countries. He leads a team of 300 people across seven offices in North America and Europe. Xabier earned a MSc in Industrial Engineering in 2004 and completed the Executive General Management Programme by IESE Business School in 2016.
John Mauti capped a 30-year career with Ontario Power Generation (OPG) by serving as the utility’s Chief Financial Officer. His leadership enabled OPG to excel in a variety of challenging industry and organizational transformations, by ensuring stable financial performance and sufficient capital to explore growth areas for clean technology. He brings acute knowledge of the energy industry in Ontario, home to 18 of Canada’s 19 active nuclear reactors. His work with OPG has made him a regular witness in regulatory hearings with both the Ontario Energy Board and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission.
