Francois' broad expertise has been critical to us in solving a number of important technical issues during product design. Furthermore, his implication and leadership has helped maintain the product development schedule despite these technical hurdles.

Benoit Reid
Vice President of Engineering • PyroPhotonics

I’ve known François professionally for many years and have always been impressed by the ingenuity and thoroughness that he demonstrates in his work, and also by the intensity of purpose with which he executes his mandates. His designs and creations form a large part of ITF’s product portfolio and we are fortunate that he can be relied upon to maintain and build upon them through his continued support.

...En travaillant étroitement avec notre personnel technique, Francois Séguin nous a permis de progresser très rapidement vers un lancement de produit tout en évitant plusieurs problèmes auxquels son expérience profonde et variée du monde de la photonique l’avait confronté. Au cours de ces mandats, il a pu mettre à contribution ses aptitudes techniques et scientifiques et s’est avéré un excellent communicateur, tant par la qualité de ses productions écrites que par ses prestations auprès de nos comités de revues de conception.

Martin Guy, Ph D.
Vice-président Technologies & Marketing • Teraxion

...Comme consultant, il a participé activement de façon significative à la conception du système iCure, un produit révolutionnaire développé par IRphotonics pour la cure des époxys. Ce produit a remporté le prestigieux prix international d’innovation en janvier 2010 à San Francisco (Photonics West). Il a aussi dirigé le développement de câbles étanches haute puissance utilisant des fibres optiques infrarouges pour des applications militaires et aérospatiales. Il a toujours démontré une rigueur scientifique et technique très élevée.

...monsieur Séguin est devenu une personne reconnue et recherchée dans le monde de l’optique-photonique. En tant que Président-directeur général du Réseau photonique du Québec, j’ai d’ailleurs été témoin de l’apport que monsieur Séguin a apporté et apporte encore aux membres industriels du réseau et de l’appréciation plus qu’enviable dont il jouit auprès de la communauté d’affaires de l’optique-photonique.

I have known François Séguin since 1999. His contributions were critical to the growth of many companies I have also been involved in. His blend of expertise in engineering, physics, reliability and quality and his unique capability to understand complex engineering issues allow him to turn engineering and design problems into solutions and opportunities. For example, when he started his consultancy mandate for a company where I used to be VP Manufacturing, we had major issues with the technology and the design of the product. François rapidly understood the problems we were facing and implemented the solutions that allowed the company to introduce the product to market in time. Without François’s contribution and expertise, this would not have been possible. I have an endless admiration for his abilities and intelligence. Working with him is always a great pleasure, probably because he is such a gentleman.
