MEET THE TEAM
Chief Executive Officer AND CO-founder
Holder of a Master's degree in Mechanical Manufacturing from École Polytechnique de Montréal, Abel Chouinard is passionate about mechanics and outdoor sports.
After working for 7 years at MDA as the Head of Composite Manufacturing, working on 3 shifts and with a multi-million dollar supply chain, he has decided to put his ideas into action and launch Lemur Design to bring space technology to the climbing world.
Powered by an almost inexhaustible energy, married and father of a toddler, Abel is never far from a jumping in a new adventure.
Chief Technology Officer
After defending a doctoral thesis in 2009 at the École Normale Supérieure de
Paris, Julien immigrated to Canada to join MDA as a mechanical analyst.
Accomplished sportsman, first in martial arts, then in long-distance running (think 89-km landmark Comrades Marathon in South Africa!), Julien did not hesitate to join the effort to combine technology and sports.
Powered by his structural expertise and cartesian mind, Julien is responsible for the technology development at Lemur Design.

He makes sure the team focuses on the real issues lived by gym operators - while, of course, training for long distance running, cross-country ski and wall climbing with his wife and two boys.
