Jérôme Lafrenière began his career after graduating from École Polytechnique de Montréal with a Mechanical Engineering bachelor’s degree, with a specialization in Biomedical Engineering. He later completed his academic training by completing a Judicial Affairs for Engineers graduate program at École de technologie supérieure, also in Montréal. During a six-year involvement with a start-up company, Jérôme gained unique experience in managing innovation. His areas of expertise include life sciences technologies, regulatory affairs and computer-assisted design and manufacturing technologies.
Before joining BCF, Jérôme was Director of Operations and Regulatory Affairs at V2R Biomedical, a company specializing in cutting edge guided surgery solutions. Having joined the company at a very early stage of its existence, he collaborated with its founders to industrialize and commercialize the company’s patented technology while building upon it. Over the years, Jérôme became responsible for overseeing the company’s production process, including activities outsourced to collaborators based in the United States. In parallel, he led several R&D projects in industrial, academic and clinical contexts. Acting as the main technical resource, he played a key role among the company’s top management group in entering a decisive partnership with the global leader in the dental implantology market.
