As of December 2023, ECOFI’s members elected a 5-person board which will run for the next two years. Marion Martinez’s seat will be up for reelection in 2024.



Chiara Manoli is Regulatory Affairs Manager at Ilsa Spa (Italy), where she has been employed since 2012. She is responsible for product registration and organic certification. Her work has increasingly focused on regulatory affairs, and she has worked extensively within ECOFI on the European Fertilising Products Regulation and has been a representative of ECOFI at the Commission Expert Group on Fertilising Products meetings since March 2014. Previously, she collaborated with ILSA on a project to develop new enhanced efficiency organo-mineral fertilisers, which developed her skills in evaluating new fertiliser prototypes, in particular laboratory tests regarding the fate and behaviour of nitrogen in controlled environments. In 2010, she obtained a master’s degree in Agricultural Science and Technology at the University of Padova (Italy). 

Ms. Manoli has extensive experience on the ECOFI board and has just finished a two-year term as President of ECOFI (December 2021 – December 2023). Before being elected President, Ms. Manoli served as Vice-President of ECOFI from December 2018 – December 2021. 









Quentin Protsenko has been working since 2016 as a regulatory manager at FRAYSSINET, a French producer of organic and organo-mineral fertiliser, soil improvers and biostimulants. He is responsible for product registration and export development and is also actively involved in French and European standardisation of fertilising products. FRAYSSINET products combine tradition, research and technology to meet the expectations of tomorrow’s agriculture: quality, safety and sustainability in respect of circular economy principles.

Previously he was the technical and regulatory affairs manager at UPJ, the French sector association of plant care products for gardeners and green spaces. He provided support to companies and helped promote a fair transition to more sustainable and healthier products following the ban on chemical plant protection products in this sector. He also managed the development of a website and phone app called « La clinique des plantes » to help amateur gardeners deal with their plant diseases.

In 2012, he obtained a master’s degree in Plant Technology and Specialty Crops at the University of Angers (France).

Mr. Protsenko was President of ECOFI from December 2018 to December 2021. Since then, he continues to serve on ECOFI’s board. He has been attending the European Commission Expert Group on Fertilising Products meetings as an ECOFI representative since January 2019.
