President and CEO, Ecosystem Energy Services

1993, age 24: André founds Ecosystem to develop innovative energy efficiency solutions. Flash forward 21 years: The company’s leading expertise translates into annual sales of over $60 million, successful implementation of a multitude of energy efficiency projects, which in turn produced $10 million in energy savings and 30,000 tonnes of reduced greenhouse gas emissions in 2013 alone. Recently, a deep energy retrofit at the Biodôme Zoo in Montreal generates savings of $1.1 million per year, reduces energy bills by 50%, and lowers greenhouse gas emissions by 80%.
