André Larin has been working in television for over 45 years. He began his career in 1961 at Radio-Canada, where he worked as an administrator in international relations, public affairs and eventually in news. In 1979, he went to work for another public broadcaster, Radio-Québec, first as executive assistant to the vice president for programming and later as director of finance and administration. After returning to Radio-Canada in 1988, he headed programming operations for the French network, as well as budget and resource management. He was later named vice president of development and programming at Cogéco Radio-Télévision. In January 1994, he moved into the private sector when he was named president-director general of Coscient, which later became part of Motion International. In May 2000, André co-founded Zone3 with Michel Bissonnette, Vincent Leduc, and Paul Dupont-Hébert, and served as the company’s first president until he stepped down in January 2009. He stayed on as chairman of the board until spring 2018. During all this time, André has also been an executive producer at Zone3, a role he still enjoys with his own brand of ever-fresh, infectious enthusiasm.
