Matthew Crouch, research scientist turned clean air crusader, is the director of clean process segments for Camfil, the world’s most technologically advanced air filtration solutions provider.
He studied at McMaster University, earning an honors degree in Biochemistry, then a specialization in Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology. Though an accomplished scientist, a career in a lab was not for him, and he soon set off in search of the road less travelled.
Working in biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, for esteemed companies as Fisher Scientific, Life Technologies and Roche; Matthew found himself involved in all levels of the business, be it inside the lab, in the board room, in sales, product management, and all over the world. When given the chance to try something new, he signed on with Camfil.
Since then, he has worked on high-profile, large scale clean room and biological research projects, as well as aided big pharmaceutical and biotech companies in saving energy and millions of dollars, by optimizing their air filtration strategies and clean room systems.
He is a highly sought after public speaker, and enjoys presenting to large and small crowds. He also sits on the board of directors for the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineer’s Canadian affiliate.
