Innovobot welcomes Guy Lafond as Chief Commercial Officer

The Quebec native returns to his roots to spearhead our growth strategy


Montreal, November 29, 2022 — Investment and innovation platform Innovobot is thrilled to announce the appointment of Guy Lafond as Chief Commercial Officer.


Guy joins us to develop and implement our commercialization strategy. Working with the Innovobot team and our ecosystem, he will help identify and exploit markets ripe for innovation and disruption, while building collaborative relationships with customers and ecosystem partners, to secure sustainable growth.


Guy returns to his native Quebec with impressive credentials gained through a formidable international career as a technical product management executive. He brings a proven record of results-driven thinking and leadership, delivering products globally for Fortune 500 utility and industrial enterprises.


Prior to joining Innovobot, Guy was Senior Director of Offering Management for global technology giant Honeywell, in Texas. He and his team managed the smart energy business for electricity and connected software with P&L accountability for approximately $320M in annual revenue. Other career milestones include the successful launch of a new metering product for European and South-East Asian markets with GE Energy/Industrial Solutions, and orchestrating a 40% increase in revenues as V.P. North-America Meters for Aclara LLC.


“Guy is a strong strategic thinker with immense global business experience”, says CEO Mario Venditti. “The growing global response to our model makes it critical for us to bring someone of Guy’s quality into the team to focus on the commercial strategic path of our ecosystem”.


For COO Fadi Albatal, Guy’s appointment strengthens the leadership team and reinforces the business development strategy. “Guy will provide the critical impetus we need to extend and sustain our presence in key technological and industrial sectors, both domestically and abroad. He is a very welcome addition to the team.”


And Guy is looking forward to reacquainting himself with Quebec winters. “It great to be coming back to Montreal and working with a group that has a truly global perspective. I’m especially excited at the prospect of working with the Labs and Fund teams to grow our innovation-based investment model”.

Welcome Guy, it’s great to have you with us.
