Mr. Fontaine started his career as a Commercial Electrical Apprentice, before working for Pnue-Tech Controls which installed primarily Delta Controls. When ESC bought out Pnue-Tech in 1990, Mr.Fontaine joined the ESC Edmonton branch and held various positions including Installation Technician, Forman, Supervisor, Engineer, and Project Manager until 1998. The decision to join ESC was easy for Mr. Fontaine as he wanted to partake in the creation of energy efficient buildings using innovative technology. Mr. Fontaine went on to become the Edmonton Branch Manager in 2012 after holding positions as Edmonton Service Manager, Operations Manager, and Sales Manager. As the Edmonton Branch Manager, Mr. Fontaine navigated the volatile Alberta economy by creating a strong, talented and forward-thinking workplace, and by finding ways to grow the business through innovation, diversification, and outside-the-box solutions. In 2018, Mr. Fontaine became the Alberta Regional Manager and created a strong brand for the province, and in 2020 he took the role of VP Prairies at Ainsworth, a role in which he will create an interprovincial support system to allow for diversification. Mr. Fontaine is a great problem-solver, has an amazing service mentality, and has created a positive work culture within ESC. He holds a Certified Master Electrician designation in Alberta (CME) and is a Master Electrician.
