Jean Bélanger
President and Chief Executive Officer
Premier Tech

A passionate entrepreneur, Jean Bélanger draws upon more than a quarter-century of experience at Premier Tech. In the course of his career, his determination, dynamism and ability to build on various innovative concepts allowed him to guide this Rivière-du-Loup native company as a world-class leader and pioneer in four core industries: Growers and Consumers, Systems and Automation, Digital and Water and Environment.

Through his unifying spirit, open-mindedness and easily approachable nature, Jean Bélanger has played an integral part in defining the very core of Premier Tech’s identity, which revolves around a strong collective Culture. By surrounding himself with talented people, encouraging intrapreneurship and leveraging the Premier Tech team’s desire to constantly exceed its ambitions, he remains successful in guiding Premier Tech’s steady and consistent growth despite a globalizing and increasingly complex market.

Along with the Leadership Team, he has been able to bring Premier Tech to the next level — from a 50 million dollars North American business in 1989 to the current global business. Thanks to the commitment of some 4 700 team members in 28 countries and the implementation of 47 plants in 16 countries, Premier Tech now records sales of nearly one billion dollars.

In addition to his work at Premier Tech, Jean Bélanger strongly believes in the importance of being fully committed through an active company involvement in the key areas of health, education and sports. He currently sits on Premier Tech’s Board of Directors, and also on diverse Business Advisory Boards to share his experience and knowhow with other Quebec businesses.

Jean Bélanger holds a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Industrial Engineering from Polytechnique Montréal.
