He was associated with aftermarket services, as well, and remained an employee for the next five years. During this period, he learned a lot of things about auto sales and started practicing in private from 1989. For the next decade, he explored other branches and divisions in auto sales & word wide exportation and had been associated with projects in Russia and Asia.
Success in the aviation sector
From an early age, Mr. Vincent wanted to be a part of the airline industry, and his dream came true when he started his company Heli Vincent inc. in January 1997. He works as the president of the company, which specializes in dry leasing and sale of aircrafts and helicopters. During this period, he also started training as a pilot and has been flying since then. He has accumulated more than 14,000 TT, according to the latest data available. When he is not busy with his other business activities, he likes to fly in Canada and has been in charge of two transatlantic flights. He has also flown a mono motor flight Quebec to Madagascar.
Denis Vincent started his journey in the aviation sector in 2000, and since then, he has been associated with some of the major mergers and acquisitions in parts of Quebec, Alberta, and British Columbia. He also works as the Chief Financial Officer for Strong Arm Labour & Contracting since 2011. Mr. Vincent likes to keep a low profile, but many people know about his association with charities.

The pressure of success
Mr. Vincent often talks about his initial struggle in his interviews. He has mentioned that he would want to do more in the real estate sector in days to come, but aviation and flying will remain his prime passions. He has also expressed hope for startups in the real estate industry and assured of helping entrepreneurs who would want his ideas for the betterment of the industry. He admits that flying is his only indulgence, and he would love to do more in days to come.
Thanks to the minimal publicity, Mr. Vincent remains a mystery to many people, even to those who are close to him. In a recent interview, he had said that he would want to announce more projects in the coming months but was waiting for the right occasion.
