Airex Energy announces the appointment of Patrick Lapointe as chief commercial officer (CCO). In this newly created position, Patrick will be responsible for pursuing the company’s business strategy and ensuring that it meets its growth and development objectives.

This appointment comes at an important time for Airex Energy as the company is experiencing growing demand for its decarbonation solutions in Canada and internationally. Airex is a leader in sustainable development products and technologies. By transforming forest biomass into biocarbon products such as biochar, biocoal and biocarbon, Airex can assist the most energy-intensive industries in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and help them achieve carbon neutrality.

Patrick has more than 25 years of experience in executive roles with multinationals and SMEs. Over the course of his career, he has held several senior management positions in organizations as diverse as Walter Surface Technologies, SONY Canada and the L’Oreal Group where he was able to generate high impact results.

“I am very proud to join Airex Energy as Chief Commercial Officer,” said Lapointe. “This is a company with incredible growth potential. As concerns for climate change are growing and urging us to divest ourselves of non-renewable resources, Airex Energy offers some of the most effective and proven decarbonization solutions on the market. It is with great enthusiasm that I join the team to lead the next steps in expanding the organization.”


“We are delighted to welcome Patrick Lapointe to Airex Energy, and to be able to count on his strategic vision and in-depth knowledge of business in Canada and abroad,” said Michel Gagnon, CEO of Airex Energy.
