My name is Stéphane Caron, and I am the  founder and president of XST Xpert Solutions Technologiques. I began my career in technology in 1983 working for numerous private sector companies offering enterprise services. In 1996, I got onboard with SHL Systemhouse Inc. which was acquired by EDS (Electronic Data Systems Corp.) Canada in 2000. For both SHL (Systems House Inc) and EDS I was the project lead, database administrator and company technology lead for the province of Québec and the Maritimes. In 2003, following the closing of the EDS Canada’s Quebec City offices, I stayed on with the Canadian Coast Guard INNAV project by launching my own company and acquiring the project from EDS. Since November 2003, I’ve been working to integrate my own business values and ethics within the daily operations of XST and have developed it into one of the best-run companies in Canada.
