Graeme Marsh was born and educated in Australia. He spent 20 years working for leading investment banks, during which he lived in Australia, HK, Japan, London and various locations in the US. He has served as a director of multiple companies, including a successful specialized Japanese Hedge Fund.1n 1998 he established Future Business Concepts (FBC) through which he consults on multiple business issues with small to medium bio-tech / pharmaceutical, new materials, environmental (HVAC, IAQ and Water), semiconductors, telecom, internet and media companies.After the ‘Dot.Com’ collapse in the early 2000s he pivoted FBC into new materials and environmental remediation, working largely in the energy sector. This shift ultimately brought him into contact with Z BioScience Inc. (ZBS), a California Biotech company specialized in development and manufacture of Probiotic Cleaners.He immediately recognized the huge and highly disruptive technological leap that probiotic cleaners represented for facility hygiene and occupant wellness. The idea of consciously bioengineering the biological communities on surfaces so they would be dominated with safe, beneficial probiotic bacteria that supported occupant wellbeing, was a complete reversal of the conventional practices and market solutions. Z BioScience had intended to focus on the Healthcare vertical to address the challenges of Hospital Acquired Infections. Unfortunately, there was a disconnect with this sector as Infection Prevention and Control personnel were looking for products with high ‘Kill Claims’ that were based on the use of toxic chemistry. This is in stark contrast to how probiotic cleaner’s work. So, Z BioScience had to develop new markets, which has been Graeme’s role since 2011, during which he has opened up several new markets including Janitorial, HVAC, Transportation, Hospitality, Education (schools and colleges), Long Term Care and more recently Veterinarian.He has spoken at multiple conferences, including California Association of School Business Officials 2019 (San Diego CA), Tri-Services Microbiome Conference 2019 (W-P AFB Dayton OH), Odor Management Conference & Technology Showcase 2017 (UCLA). His work has been the foundation of several presentations at NADCA (egg: coil cleaning). He was also a participant at the 2018 Gordon Research Conference on Microbiology of the Built Environment, and the 2019 and 2020 Institute for Health in the Built Environment Conferences.
