Guy Benoit


Mr. Guy Benoit - Chief Executive Officer

Guy holds a Bachelor of Law (LL.B.) from Montreal University as well as an Engineer's degree and Bachelor of Applied Science (B.Sc.A.) from the Polytechnic School of Montreal.

He has Managed Projects in the science and technology field for over 25 years for some of Quebec’s most prestigious institutions like Hydro-Quebec and The University of Sherbrooke as well as the private sector.

He has a wide ranging skill set for negotiating international trade agreements, identifying and evaluating business opportunities as well as drawing up marketing strategies. More coming soon...

Jean-Louis Bertrand


Mr. Jean-Louis Bertrand - Chief Operating Officer

Mr. Jean-Louis Bertrand has more than 30 years of experience as a director and project leader in all aspects of technology, in both software and hardware.

During his career, Jean-Louis has demonstrated the effectiveness of his innovative spirit, his strong analytical abilities and his understanding of technology in numerous fields. Under his direction, Jean-Louis has developed successful and recognized products in many areas of technology including; multiple algorithms for collision engine, physics engine, A.I. for automatic stereoscopic imaging and rendering engines used in high-end software for the field of special effects in high budget projects.

Jean-Louis has also directed and developed optical technologies, electronic devices (dongle), circuit boards including an image processor. In the field of manufacturing, Jean-Louis has directed and developed the assembly line for manufacturing one of the first real-time electric motion base for simulators.

Jean-Louis went on to design, create and manufacture the HOLO brand which included the HOLODECK and the HOLOSTATION.    

Jean-Louis’ latest projects include Carbon Nanotube sensor technology integrated into floor tiles for the retail industry. This systems is low cost, effective, simple to implement, maintain and reliable. It gathers user data such as; the shape, position, direction and weight of individual’s shoes or feet. A complimentary system of shelves is linked to this data set. It detects the amount, shape, weight and position of the products they hold.

His combined experience in these technology fields is the driving force behind the development and marketing efforts of the 6th ELEMENT brand.


Robert Murray-Smith


Dr. Robert Murray-Smith - Chief Technology Officer

Dr. Robert Murray-Smith is a renowned PHD and scientist who wrote his PHD Thesis Titled: 
Dynamic simulations of carbons and carbon composite materials at South Hampton University in 1989.

Since that time, Dr. Murray-Smith has gone on to become one of the World’s finest authorities on graphene and carbon based materials. Dr. Murray-Smith has held several top positions such as Research Officer for Imperial Chemical Industries Pl. Senior Research Officer at Sutton Chemicals in Huddersfield, Yorkshire. Dr. Murray-Smith has also developed mechanical testing methods for carbon fiber based polymer composites for the aerospace, military and general consumer applications.

Although Dr. Murray-Smith spent many years researching the many extraordinary properties of Graphene as an energy storage device, he came to the conclusion that the  scarcity  of  Graphene  would  cause  several  problems  trying  to  mass produce batteries. The advanced multi- layered carbon based battery that Dr. Murray-Smith and his team have produced has a higher performance as Graphene without the challenges of scarcity, production and cost challenges.
