Regional Manager, USA – California
A promotion at Averna gave me the opportunity to relocate with my family from Montreal to San Francisco. This new position has brought exciting challenges. It’s a motivating environment where I get to work with very talented people on cutting-edge projects. And with Averna, I’m sure there are many more exciting opportunities ahead for me.

Most importantly, each groundbreaking project has opened the door for yet another. I can truly say I use and expand my engineering capabilities on a daily basis. It makes me excited to wake up and go to work each day.
