Mario Bouchard has led an inspiring career path in the wireless industry. He co-founded iBwave in 2003, a company globally serving over 400 leading telecommunication firms, in over 80 countries worldwide, with innovative in-building solutions. He took his 15 years of experience working for TELUS Mobility and Bell Canada, two leading Canadian wireless operators, to create a unique suite of products that would address the needs of the in-building wireless market, soon becoming the standard for the entire in-building ecosystem. The company was sold to Corning in 2015 and went from startup to successful exit in 12 years.
His visionary approach led the company to win numerous awards, notably including the 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and Technology Fast 500 awards in North America, as well as the 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 PROFIT 100 awards in Canada. In 2011, Bouchard was recognized with the prestigious Québec Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award in Information Technology.
