Speech title "Global Market Overview"


Dennis Seisun has worked in England, France, Belgium, and, for the last 25 years, has been based in San Diego, California. He graduated from Bath University in England with a bachelor of science degree in engineering and a master of science degree in industrial marketing. He worked as an engineer for Foster Wheeler, as a consultant for C.H. Kline S.A. in Brussels, and for Kelco (then a division of Merck) as commercial development product manager. He was closely involved in the market development of many new biopolymers to follow xanthan in the marketplace. In 1985, Dennis founded IMR International and has since focused his attentions on the food hydrocolloid markets of the U.S. and Western Europe. The Quarterly Review of Food Hydrocolloids was started by IMR International in 1991 and has become established as a comprehensive and independent source of information on the food hydrocolloid market. IMR has chaired the International Conference on Food Hydrocolloids for the past sixteen years alternating between the USA and Europe.
