Louis Pilon is a successful Quebec entrepreneur who transformed a company of 50 employees with a turnover of 5 million dollars into a company of more than 625 employees with a turnover of nearly 400 million dollars and growth attaining 30% year after year.
In 1990, after completing his studies at Laval University, Louis began his career in the pharmaceutical industry as a sales representative at Bayer. He rose through the industry ranks before going into business for himself with the acquisition of JAMP Pharma in 2006. At the time, this British Columbia–based company was in financial difficulty. After moving its head office and operations to Quebec, Louis invested significant sums that would bring the company back on the path to success.
As President and CEO, in recent years he has consolidated the position of the JAMP Pharma Group in Canada and extended its reach to the international market, such that JAMP Pharma is now present on all continents. The company has experienced exceptional growth in the last 5 years and has tripled its turnover. It is now the leading pharmaceutical company in Quebec in terms of prescriptions filled.
His ambition: to make JAMP Pharma the largest Canadian-owned pharmaceutical company in the world, while creating local wealth and security of supply and providing an exceptional work environment for its employees.
Louis Pilon is the father of 4 children and is keen to transmit his family values to them. One such value is giving back to the community. For twenty years, Louis has supported the mission of the Portage Foundation, an organization that is particularly close to his heart and for which he has served as governor.
