Kees Van Draanen back with RĂ©alisations Inc. Montreal

Montreal – December 8, 2016  –  Roger Parent, Réalisations’ President and Head of Creation, is pleased to announce that Kees Van Draanen has returned to Réalisations as VP Finances and Administration to help in structuring the recent growth and development that the company is experiencing.

Kees has cumulated more than thirty years of experience working for cultural organizations based in Québec, Ontario and Europe in the fields of administration, human resources and finance.

After studies in History followed by diplomas in Accounting and Economics, Kees worked most notably for Cirque du Soleil as an administrative director from 1998 to 1993 in Canada and from 1994 to 1999 and again from 2002 to 2005 in Europe. Upon his return to Canada in 2006, he consulted for the Palais Montcalm theatre to put into place its administrative structure. He then worked for Réalisations as its Director of Administration and Finances and afterwards worked with the Grand Ballets Canadiens and, most recently, with RIDEAU - an independent network of presenters of artistic events. 

Kees’ experience is very welcomed as Réalisations prepares to deliver a series of projects in Canada, the US, Europe and in Asia in 2017.


Founded in 2000 by Roger Parent, Réalisations Inc. Montréal, creates remarkable events for audiences worldwide in the fields of live performance and interactive experiences. The prize-winning firm is currently involved with projects in Canada, the US and Asia and continues to develop applications in the area of Ambient Intelligence around the globe. In recent years, New York City's Metropolitan Opera, the One World Trade Center Observatory and the Marriott Renaissance NYC midtown hotel have called upon the technical savoir-faire and artistic vision of Réalisations to help them differentiate their offer. Doha's International Airport, Plano Texas’ Nature Interpretation Center and the Jacques Cartier Bridge in Montreal also count among their clients that wish to engage audiences in meaningful ways. Réalisations explores the use of immersive video, audio and other theatrical and industrial technologies controlled through their high-performance Sens.ei software platform for creating one-of-a-kind interactive environments, blending media savvy with tangible experiences.
