Here you will find our co-founders Tyrell and Victor. Here are a few things about them.
Tyrell Pantophlet

Tyrell Pantophlet

Co-founder, CEO & CTO
Tyrell was born in St. Maarten. Growing up he felt that attaining sustainability and a circular economy was a huge problem on his island. He was especially concerned with the landfills and electricity generation system. This became a driving force for him to pursue the masters in the field of sustainability. As the co-founder, executive & tech lead, he deals with the overarching details of the business and manages its operations and members, as well as leading the technological development of the bin.
While pursuing double expertise (MSc in energy for smart cities), he was awarded a partial scholarship from InnoEnergy. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with cancer even undergoing treatment and hospitalized he kept the vision, motivation, and fire which never stopped him from producing productive outputs as much as possible. Now a cancer survivor dedicates himself full time to the start-up with an even greater passion for pushing the vision further.
Victor was born in Lagos, Nigeria, a megacity that faced annual floods that are often exacerbated by a less than optimal waste management chain. Victor dreams to have an optimal waste management method and respecting the resources of our planet with the goal to restore them and just keep exploiting it. Which became the driving force to co-found PLAEX.
As the co-founder, executive & tech lead, he has dealt with the overarching details of the business and manages its operations and members, as well as leading the technological development of the bin. Through his product management background and various other entrepreneurial endeavors, has one thousand times his net worth and all these are just the beginning.
