There are certain individuals that have impacted me throughout my personal and professional life but Alain is one of the few people that had a tremendous impact on both. Throughout the years following my departure from Komunik I always cited Alain as my greatest business mentor and as a man who was born to lead. While working together I can say that his leadership inspired me to excel and he was constantly pushing me to extend well beyond what I perceived as my limitations. I really do not know where my career path would have led were it not for Alain and I cannot endorse anyone with a higher level of confidence than this man. Anyone working with him will be extremely well served by his business vision and guidance.

Alain was a great influence on my thought development in Web Marketing. An amazing visionary who communicates his enthusiasm very convincingly, he helped my take a major leap in my understanding of the Web at the time. I would still be way behind where I am now if it weren't for the year I worked with him and the fantastic FokusGroup team.

Alain est un innovateur qui adore découvrir (et faire découvrir) des contrées inexplorées. L'ayant accompagné durant l'époque de croissance importante qu'a connue Komunik, j'ai pu apprécier son immense talent de promoteur enthousiaste. Ce que je dois retenir aussi, c'est son esprit de conviction inébranlable qui l'a animé tout au long de l'aventure Komunik.
