After a long and successful career that led Solotech’s Ron Morissette to be in involved in virtually every aspect of the entertainment industry, he recently announced that he has chosen to retire from the industry.

Over the last four decades Morissette has been at the forefront of innovations that have significantly advanced the fields of entertainment and audiovisual technology.  In 2008 he joined Solotech in the role of general manager of corporate development. In that capacity he was one of the prime movers of the expansion policy across Canada for Solotech’s Integration Division.  More recently, Morissette put all of his energy into the start-up of a Solotech office in Toronto.

Paul Tytaneck from Solotech Toronto, says, “In the eyes of the industry, Ron was a great ambassador for Solotech. His joie de vivre coupled with his determination were an inspiration to us all.  His vision motivates us to continue the work he began ensuring that Solotech will continue to thrive in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. ”

Jean-Louis Blanchard, Solotech’s Vice President-Integration Division, adds, “Working with him has been both an honour and a pleasure.  His unshakable passion for his work and his deep sense of commitment were reflected in everything he did. He most certainly will be missed and he can be very proud of what he accomplished. ”

Morissette now intends to devote time to his other passions such as travelling with his wife Jane and reading the French classics.
