Last June 16th, during the COPL Annual Meeting, COPL Director, Réal Vallée, presented the 2017 Award of Recognition to Germain Lamonde, Executive Chairman of EXFO. The award is given to a former student for outstanding achievement in industry or research.


Mr. Lamonde completed his Master's studies in optics at Université Laval under the supervision of See Leang Chin. In 1985, he founded EXFO which became a world leader for test and monitoring of telecommunication networks and a provider of services and analytics for the telecommunications industry. Headquartered in Quebec City, the company is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange as well as the NASDAQ in New York and now has over 1600 employees in 25 countries.

Mr. Lamonde recently made a generous contribution to Université Laval's Department of Physics, Engineering Physics and Optics that will be used to equip the new educational laboratories. Thanks to his gift, a whole generation of students will benefit from an enhanced training experience.

With this Award of Recognition, the COPL wishes to thank Mr. Lamonde for having placed Québec expertise in optics and photonics at the forefront across the world.
