Our “Fearless Leaders”
Robert Camoin founded Camoin Associates in 1999 with the conviction that successful development requires leadership, strategies targeting industry sector opportunities and business needs, and sustainable funding to incentivise private investment. Prior to merging with Camoin Associates in 2010, Jim Damicis built PolicyOne Research into a leading research and analysis firm in Maine serving private and public clients throughout the Northeast.
