The ERJ Brainiac of the Year Awards 2018 have been decided using a formula in which points were awarded for each correct answer, special mention and helpful and/or amusing email sent in during the year, with extra bonus points going to our Brainiac of the Month winners.
Based on this highly complicated (and only slightly arbitrary) system, our regional champions – which exclude the overall winner – are:
Jose Padron, material development specialist, Waterville TG Inc., Waterville, Québec, Canada
Asia and RoW region
Yuichi (Joe) Sano, Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd, Itami, Japan.
Joint winners John Bowen, consultant, Bromsgrove, UK; and David Mann, manager rubber technology, SI Group, Béthune, France.
Hans-Bernd Lüchtefeld, market research & communication manager, PHP Fibers GmbH, Obernburg, Germany – the first ever ERJ Brainiac of the Year
Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the ERJ Brainiac competition throughout this year and we look forward to doing battle with you all again in 2019.
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!
