Alain brings more than 20 years of strategic planning, program management and new product development expertise to his current role as Senior Manager at BDO USVI. In December 2018, Alain pioneered the launch of a new BDO consulting practice in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI), providing disaster recovery project management services in the aftermath of the two CAT 5 hurricanes that struck USVI in 2017. The practice helps public and private sector clients build a more resilient future in the Caribbean. Alain is presently serving as BDO’s USVI PMO Director for the Territory’s $8+ billion in federal disaster recovery funds allotted to capital improvement projects across the islands of St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix.
Prior to joining BDO, Alain relocated to USVI in April 2014 where he served as Director of a leading economic development company for four and a half years. In this role, he worked with client executive teams across the United States to identify and coordinate integrated solutions providing high impact opportunities for growth and organizational effectiveness.
Previously, Alain worked in New York directing business and IT innovation and influencing change in highly complex corporate environments. Alain held leadership roles at Deloitte Consulting, Anthem Health and IBM from 2003 to 2014 where he specialized in strategic planning for emerging business opportunities and large-scale business transformation initiatives.
He has earned certifications in change management, project management, process improvement and agile methods. Alain obtained his MBA in corporate strategy and international business from The Ross School of Business at University of Michigan in 2003 and received his bachelor’s degree in computer science from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1997.
Alain founded his first social enterprise in 2005, and the multi-cultural marketing initiative targeting the Caribbean-American community received the Key to the City of Miami Beach in 2006 under his vision and leadership. Alain has since continued to pursue trailblazing multi-cultural start-up ventures with a social impact including co-founding an international trade and remittance transfer company in Dominican Republic and also launching a Caribbean tourism company that curates travel experiences aimed at changing the perspective on Haiti.
