Philippe Bonnet is a former Pump Engineer with Goulds Pumps and currently the CEO of Creativ APS Goulds Pumps, which is a company carved out from Goulds Pumps to allow for more flexibility in the pump business.
Creativ APS Goulds Pumps have heavy presence in Central Africa with countries like Gabon, Cameroon, Angola already enjoying this affiliation. Philippe came to Nigeria for the first time, to explore the opportunities for collaboration with BOG. He had been in contact with BOG’s business development team, especially through Echezona Moneke, a Product Specialist in BOG’s Rotating Equipment Unit. He also had extensive interaction with the Area Sales Manager for Goulds Pumps, West Africa, Mr. Kunle Omisore.
Whilst in Lagos, Philippe, Kunle and Echezona went on client visits to Addax Petroleum, BW Offshore, Delta Afrik and Walter Smith to engage the Mechanical and Project Engineering teams of these companies in order to position the flexible but workable solutions of Creativ APS Goulds Pumps in line for upcoming pump sales opportunities.
Beyond client visits, Philippe is open to building a strong and profitable business with BOG through technical supports, trainings and bringing his expertise to bear on pump business in Nigeria’s Oil and Gas industry.
