Director, Spa & Fitness North & Central America, Accor
Leading the spa, fitness and recreation programs for the Accor's 120 hotel portfolio in the North & Central America's region since 2014, Mr. Poulin is no stranger to hospitality and the wellness industry with a career in the fitness and spa that spans over 30 years taking him from coast to coast in Canada to Asia and the Middle East.
Often recognized as an innovator and "trends detangler" in the wellness industry, Mr. Poulin's hands on experimental approach to trying practically anything once allows for real life skills that go beyond theories and concepts. His approach to health and wellness is very much based on scientific evidences rather than being reactive to passing trends thus allowing for the development of carefully curated wellness programs and facilities throughout his career.
Earlier in his career, Mr. Poulin lead the wellness department at a large community center in Vancouver but soon realized that many of the aging members of the community faced with various diseases could not easily and safely benefit from the programs already in place and tailored for younger healthier individuals. Working with various partners in the medical field along with the expertise of his team of fitness professionals, Mr. Poulin developed multiple rehabilitation programs from cardiac to osteoporosis to arthritis and cancer, many still in place today, almost 20 years later.
Mr. Poulin holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology and a Master of Science degree in Nutrition from the University of Montreal with a specialization on cancer and exercise.
