An experienced entrepreneur, Robert Gervais has accumulated a diverse collection of professional experiences. Following the sale of his first two ventures, he relocated to Grenoble, France. There, he worked as an industrial designer and then oversaw the development and implementation of an international public relations campaign at the Schneider Group (Merlin Gérin Inc.). Returning to Montreal a year later, he completed his MBA and enrolled as a professor of international business at Concordia University. Concurrently, he undertook an appointment as financial advisor for a boutique brokerage firm.
In 1995, Robert broke away from the world of finance and founded Rightime Productions, a film and television production company. The acclaimed “Jackie Robinson: A Season of Change” documentary (broadcast on CBC, CTV and PBS), along with the 15 plays and films he wrote, produced and directed, led him from Montreal to Los Angeles, where he worked alongside some of Hollywood’s greatest, including Robert Redford, Sandra Bullock, Jackie Chan and Luc Besson.
In 2000, looking for a new challenge, he tackled the information economy and co-founded Pre2Post Technologies. As President, Robert’s vision has anchored Pre2Post’s corporate culture and helped pioneer the ZeroFail convention – a guarantee that computer networks will work perfectly.
Fuelled by his entrepreneurial drive and community spirit, Robert sits on the boards of Youth Employment Services, the Geordie Theatre for Children, the Leadership Awards for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, the Alumni Associations of Lakefield College School and the John Molson School of Business MBA.
A true leader both in business and in the community, he has attracted the attention of a variety of institutions that have recognized his accomplishments. Recipient of the MS Leadership Award, he was bestowed the prestigious title of Dobson Fellow by McGill University’s Dobson Center for Entrepreneurial Studies. In addition, his company was named one of Canada’s Top 25 up-and-coming companies by the National Post and a Hot50 company (24 th) by PROFIT Magazine.
