WEB-CAB is honored that Francois Xavier Tremblay, senior post-implementation support technician, was recognized by its peers of the Woodworking Network for the Top 40 Under 40 Award. This industry network celebrates the next generation of industry professionals impacting North American wood products manufacturing and its labor force development. This award acknowledges Francois Xavier’s achievements and innovations in productivity, profitability, social good, ingenuity, peer inspiration, product development, and organizational leadership, among others.
Francois Xavier has a significant role at WEB-CAB: to take ownership of post-implementation support for the software developer’s solution suite. In his role, he accompanies new customers in successfully adopting new solutions and technologies. He has a gift for adapting his vocabulary to the audience; whether speaking to a neophyte or an IT manager, he can work with his counterpart to solve complex issues reassuringly.
“Despite Xavier’s young age, he has already made a vast contribution to the field of cabinetmaking,” says Veronique Plessis Belair, Chief Operating Officer at WEB-CAB. “With more than 12 years of experience in woodworking as a cabinet maker, Xavier is extremely appreciated by customers for his in-depth technical knowledge and understanding of the reality and challenges owners and shop employees face daily,” adds Mrs. Plessis Belair.
“This generation of woodworking industry leaders has faced challenges and uncertainty on a grand scale in the last few years,” said Harry Urban, FDMC publisher, a Woodworking Network publication. “Nevertheless, they have managed to prosper, inspire, educate, and innovate. Congratulations to all of the Woodworking Network 40 Under 40 nominees and honorees. The best is yet to come for these folks!”
This year’s team of honorees will join 242 alums who have been recognized with this distinction in the past, thus joining a cohort of some of the youngest, best, and brightest contributors to wood products manufacturing in North America. Francois Xavier joins Jonathan Saucier, WEB-CAB’s Chief Technology Officer, who received the Top 40 Under 40 Award in 2020.
