Our CEO, Yves has been building technology since he was a teenager. He built his first software game at 16 and then as an Electrical Engineer student started building computers in his basement to sell to other students. Over the years he has been a participant in building many things from a business telephone set, to Lottery Sales POS units, Thermal Printers, Video Lottery terminals, to a salmon counter, to name just a few.
Yves finds it truly rewarding to work at a place where most of the energy is focused on making things better. The positive energy that he gets just watching others grow, both personally and in the business is inspiring. Yves believes the most important thing some one can do is to matter. If he can help an employee find their talent, their passion ... then maybe a difference can be made. He is obsessed with finding not only his own talents but those of his friends, coworkers and most precious of all his grandkids.
Yves is a passionate studier of human behavior and is focused on becoming better at the things that give him energy: Dancing (salsa is his favorite) Cooking (he likes salsa here too but Thai and French is more to his taste); physical activities (2-3 hours a day, yes a bit of a nut - he enjoys Yoga, Weight training, snowboarding and Biking). His personal goal for the year is to do a 360 spin on a snowboard.
But most of all he loves innovation and building things. (Oh... and a good water balloon fight too).
