Alain Bélanger, CEO & Founder of Corruven Inc.
Since founding his first company in 1986, Mr. Bélanger has been working against the grain to redefine what it means to manage forests sustainably. But his eagerness to protect the rich ecosystems our future depends on has taken him in the bold new direction that is Corruven. Mr. Bélanger has garnered over 30+ years of experience in building award-winning fast-growth companies.
Enthusiasm for innovation, sustainability, disruption, and changing the world are all synonyms that represent Alain Belanger. He has many titles - forest engineer, serial entrepreneur, sustainability advocate, innovator, inventor, and certainly a few more. There is only one title, however, that can succinctly do the man justice.
Alain Belanger is a visionary leader, and a gifted one at that. An encounter with him is sure to leave you both filled with excitement, eager to change the world and utterly perplexed, questioning your perspective of how the world should work.
Today, he is leading a carefully selected team of innovators in building a truly sustainable future by leveraging the disruptive potential of his material technologies. The company is backed by over 150 strategic investors and is well on its way to changing the game, most particularly in the protective packaging and building materials industry. Alain and Corruven are focused on creating truly sustainable solutions with the long term in mind.
