Sector Expert: Gary Economo
Gary Economo, president and chief executive officer of Focus Graphite, has a distinguished business leadership career, serving as CEO for a number of public and private high technology companies during the last 20 years. A former president and CEO of Dynasty Components Inc., Economo enjoys a long history of graphite marketing and sales for high-tech applications. Prior to joining Focus Graphite Inc., a company he founded with Jeffrey York, he served as director, corporate communications and investor relations for Everton Resources Inc. He has a track record of success and expertise in building shareholder value when tasked with bringing discovery companies to market.
Focus Graphite CEO and Director Gary Economo says the tipping point is coming for natural flake mining developers—even during a depressed commodities cycle. This optimistic view is based on the urgent necessity of manufacturers today to source those critical materials and technologies needed to meet globally mandated CleanTech targets in advance of a 2020 deadline. Focus, says Economo, is on strategic trajectory to capitalize on global change with his company's high-purity graphite deposit, Lac Knife in Quebec.
