This episode's guest is Sebastien Roy my cofounder, CEO and the person behind the original idea for Lean Systems.
Seb grew up in Sherbrooke, Quebec, in Canada, and did his undergrad, master’s and Ph.D at Universite de Sherbrooke in Physics, with his graduate work focusing on superconductivity.
After his post-graduate work, he began working at AD-OPT, an operations research company specializing in solving optimization problems like crew scheduling for some of the world’s top commercial aviation companies.
He graduated from Founder Institute Montreal with me, which is where we met and he refined his idea for what would become Lean Systems, and convinced me to join as a cofounder.
As one would expect for cofounders, I have an immense amount of respect for Seb - he’s one of the smartest, hardworking, and thoughtful people I know. This conversation is a bit of an introduction and background to Seb and Lean Systems, and how optimization works in commercial and business aviation.
