InnovaBuzz Episode #94 – Model the Masters: Colin Gooch

InnovaBuzz Episode #94 – Model the Masters: Colin Gooch

In this episode of our Model the Masters series, our featured Master is Colin Gooch, the Technical Director of Resene Paints. Colin was a valued customer in my previous corporate career, but much more than that, Colin is a person whom I admire greatly, who has been an inspiration to me in my career, who became a friend and mentor in the time we worked together. He was instrumental in all of the innovative technical developments at Resene Paints and positioning them as a leader in the industry over the past 45 years.
