Javier Sanz is the new CEO of QS Adhesives & Sealants S.L, a Spanish manufacturer of adhesives and sealants founded in 1995.

The family business, known in the market under the QS brand name, was
co-founded by the Sanz Muñoz family from Elche with first and second generation members. It continues to grow and consolidate its position in the market today. 

As a chemical engineer and post-graduate from the IESE Business School, Javier Sanz has developed most of his professional career at Quilosa Selena Iberia, where he has carried out a successful job in the sales and marketing field for the last 25 years. He has been the general sales manager of Quilosa since 2015 and also became part of the board of directors and as a result, has extensive experience in the adhesives and sealants sector.

“I assume with enormous personal and professional enthusiasm the mission of leading one of the few Spanish companies in the adhesives and sealants sector with the trajectory and potential of QS. Personally, I fully identify with the values, entrepreneurial spirit, dedication to service and the export motivation of this company,” comments Javier Sanz. “I appreciate the confidence provided from all the Sanz family. I am taking over the challenge with the hope of achieving the goals that we have set for ourselves in this new stage. I am convinced that together, with the great professional team that I am joining, we will be able to place QS as one of the leading brands in the market, both domestically and internationally – where it already operates.”
