Ernest Yale, founder and co-controlling shareholder of Triotech, has announced the appointment of Charles Décarie as the company’s chief operating officer.

Décarie, who until recently managed the operations of Cirque du Soleil, will now oversee all of Triotech’s operations in Montreal and around the world.

“Charles will be my right-hand man and will play a leading role at Triotech,” said Yale. “He will help define the company’s direction and lead its various teams.

“Recognised for their dynamism and innovative spirit, our teams have established a prominent place worldwide for their ambitious design projects in the field of immersive and interactive attractions for theme parks and tourism sites.”

Décarie brings a wealth of knowledge and valuable expertise to Triotech. During a career of more than 15 years at Cirque du Soleil, he held many senior management positions, both at head office and in international markets, and was one of the architects of the company’s growth.

“I am very proud to be joining a dynamic and talented Montreal-based company that emphasises innovation and creativity,” Décarie said. “Triotech offers visually stunning and highly interactive experiences that stand out in the industry and has a huge development potential.”
