Mario, very proud father of his two young children, Èmy and Léo alongside his high school sweetheart wife Mylène, is a passionate serial entrepreneur since 2000 who is always on the hunt for the next opportunity. He started his own craft brewery along with two partners in 2012. He particularly recalls having a hard time to fund supplies not knowing much about the vast number of suppliers for equipment around. He relied on eBay for most of his needs but then quickly built a long list of trusted suppliers.
From there, his knowledge of anything mechanical in a brewery from basic electrical to automation really kicked in. Mario is a self learner who always go by that if someone can do it, he can as well. After helping and guiding new brewery startups he saw the opportunity in founding a company that would supply brewing equipment. Since then he has helped more than 30 breweries in their endeavor and keeps supporting them.
Being a brewer and a micro brewery owner, Mario is always keen to share his wealth of knowledge and understands the exact needs of any startups and growing breweries, this is one of the key element that makes Brewery Trader a top supplier in North America. He has a passion for any machines and loves setting up new breweries.
In his spare time he enjoys time with his family out camping, plays drums and keeps in shape with Patenaude Martial Arts.
Mario’s objective with Brewery Trader? To become the #1 source for micro breweries along with providing microbreweries a buying power to get them to save more money for their everyday needs.
