Patrick Bergé

Patrick Bergé

Chairman of the Board and Cofounder

Introduced to the world of performing arts at an early age, Patrick Bergé quickly realized that existing cultural venues and their equipment did not meet the needs of artists, and that their functionality could be seriously improved. Combining his passion for arts and architecture, he earned his bachelor’s degree from Laval University’s School of Architecture in 1981 and pursued his training by attending numerous seminars specialized in acoustics and theatre design, both in Québec and abroad.

With the vision to develop a global and unique expertise in theatre design, Patrick founded Scéno Plus in 1985 by bringing together under one roof a complete range of integrated services. Throughout his career, Patrick has supervised the work of an impressive number of cultural and entertainment venues of various sizes, both in Québec and internationally. And since 2019 – while the management of the company was gradually being transferred to his two sons, Olivier and Vincent – Patrick has been acting as a business development strategic advisor for Scéno Plus while also serving as the company’s Chairman of the Board.
