What started as a Caribbean journey turned into a powerful opportunity to partner with organizations in a time of crisis. Founder, Alain Leroy was born and raised by Haitian-immigrant parents in New York. After gaining 20 years of leadership experience in major corporate and consulting environments, he relocated to the U.S. Virgin Islands in 2014 for the opportunity to build and grow international consulting organizations in the Caribbean. He first served as Director at a leading economic development company in St. Thomas where he was responsible for driving the sales, delivery, and development of consulting and management services for clients across the contiguous United States. In 2017, with he and his family in St. Thomas, the islands were struck by two category 5 hurricanes, Irma and Maria. In the aftermath of the disaster, Alain volunteered his time in support of the territory’s long-term recovery efforts. In that capacity, he saw first-hand the need to help organizations transform in the face of sudden or extended crisis, so he formed Yorel & Associates. The company now operates in New York and the Caribbean helping companies solve their toughest challenges in the years to come.
