Mohamed Akrouf

Business development director

There is a relatively small segment of leaders in the business world; individuals who seem able to build relationships, trust, and rapport with almost anyone, and then are able to broker the relationships and make connections between people, creating partnerships and alliances, and motivating forward momentum to ‘get things done.’

Mohamed is one of those people, and ‘getting things done’ and driving results—through collaboration, partnerships, and relationships— is what he is all about. With an enthusiastic and genuinely friendly attitude, Mohamed radiates a sincere passion for delivering value and benefits to his customers.

An IT and business consultant by training, Mohamed earned his Computer Science degree at Champlain College and a bachelor in Commercial Operations from John Molson School of Business. Having spent a few years as a solutions consultant for in the pharmaceutical industry in various countries around the globe shaped his desire and need to make a larger, positive impact on more people. After returning to school and earning an MBA degree from HEC Montreal, Mohamed’s career quickly accelerated over the following years. His profound love for entrepreneurship and business management has led him to start his own consulting firm, Vision Consulting, straight out of HEC Montreal.

For four years Mohamed has been awarded multiple IT contracts and has built a reputation for himself as a value-focused consultant, bringing noticeable business gains in every single project. In parallel, his attraction for newer and clean technologies has brought him to join forces with Alnoor Sheriff, a well reputed entrepreneur in Canada, to kick-start Leedstech Environmental Technologies, which manufactured and distributed energy management thermostats in the Latin American markets. More recently, Mohamed’s consulting endeavour has led him to partner with a handful of well known consultants at Prodago, a world leader in data governance, where he manages business relationships with existing customers while also being responsible for the development of the firm.
Throughout it all, Mohamed has repeatedly proved his ability to lead through diverse and challenging situations. Now entrusted with business development activities at PoleTrusion Canada, Mohamed brings value through the various skills of strategic planning, operations, partnership and alliance building, account management and customer relations, marketing, and fundraising.
