President and CEO
Ramiro has over 30 years of experience working in the field of civil engineering with a special focus on electrical and telecommunications support. He obtained his basic training in civil engineering with complementary courses in metallurgy and metric design practices, and acquired skills in shop assembly methods, practical fabrication, erection and field welding practices.
Ramiro has designed and implemented innovative solutions for major corporations such as Telus, Bell, Ericsson and Hydro-Québec. After working on these projects, he realized that he could make substantial advancements in shelter, pole and tower designs by using FRP composite materials. These composite structures were not only stronger, lighter, longer-lasting, and easier to install than their wood, steel, and concrete counterparts, they were also more environmentally friendly than any other product on the market as they do not leach chemicals into the environment and do not require the use of pesticides or preservatives.
After many years of research and development, working with the National Research Council Canada (NRC) and completing testing with Dr. Brahim Benmokrane at the University of Sherbrooke, Ramiro founded Cegeny in order to commercialize these composite structures for the utilities and telecommunications markets. The company evolved into a renewable energy provider and was acquired by GPGC.
