Most recently, Roure served as principal of Roure Consulting.
“QSC is a company which is considered the gold standard in our industry,” says Olivier. “The company and I share the same fundamental values in that everyone involved all down the line on a project is our customer, and it’s our role to see that they are satisfied with the results. This is what makes the company the right place for me. It feels very natural to join QSC and I am excited about the future.”
