After earning an undergraduate degree at l’Université de Moncton and majoring in audiology at the University of Ottawa, he opened his first clinic with partner Pauline LeBlanc (no relation) in Dieppe in 2000. He also worked clinics at The Moncton Hospital and the Dr. Georges-L-Dumont Hospital.
They purchased more outlets and today there are 11 Avenir Hearing centres – the original in Dieppe, two in Moncton as well as others in Shediac, Miramichi, Fredericton, Oromocto, Quispamsis, St. Stephen, Grand Falls, and Edmundston. There are plans for growth outside of New Brunswick.
“We are fortunate that we have built a very positive reputation with our clients and our employees,” LeBlanc said. “In fact, prospective employees come looking for us rather than us recruiting them. “They all want to work for a positive company that is making an impact on their communities. This is our mission and we will continue to pursue.”
