Though bringing together two of the world’s largest geosynthetics producers is an enormous task, Solmax-GSE is continuing its rapid evolution with a key announcement: Peter McCourt has joined the executive team and has been named the company’s Global Head of Sales.

McCourt Named Global Head of Sales for Solmax-GSE
Peter McCourt has joined the Solmax-GSE executive team as Global Head of Sales.

(Editor’s note: Geosynthetica will soon publish an update interview with CEO Jean-Louis Vangeluwe on Solmax-GSE’s remarkable year.)
In a release, Solmax-GSE noted that the appointment is “an important move towards fulfilling the company’s vision of reshaping the fast-growing geosynthetics industry.”
McCourt has held several senior leadership positions with GSE since 2010. Prior to Solmax’s acquisition of GSE, McCourt was based in Bangkok as the Regional President of the Asia Pacific region (APAC). He then took up a lead role with global sales and marketing out of Houston, where GSE’s international headquarters was based and where Solmax also has a major facility.
McCourt brings significant international business experience to his role, having lived in Europe, Asia and North America during his career. In his new role, he will return to his hometown of Ardrossan, Scotland and travel globally from there.


“Our goal is to remain the growth-oriented leader in the industry, providing innovative solutions, services and expertise, supporting our customers from various industries that we serve. We aim to further enhance our presence in core markets as well as focus on the growth of under-developed regions and applications.” – Peter McCourt
“We are very pleased to have Peter McCourt assume the role of Global Head of Sales and welcome him on board. His experience and knowledge of our industry and markets combined with his background as a senior leader will make him a key contributor to our Executive team.” – Jean-Louis Vangeluwe, President and CEO at Solmax-GSE.
