In both 2010 and 2011, Dr. Orelien was recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the country’s top 10 black entrepreneurs (# 3 in 2011), and in 2010 the magazine covered his work in Haiti following the January earthquake. A couple of months after the earthquake, Dr. Orelien organized a non-profit team to gather data about victims to help aid organizations properly target relief efforts.
Following the earthquake, Dr. Orelien has put his plans to be involved in Haiti on fast track because of the “fierce urgency of now”. He believes that job creation through mid to large scale projects are essential to Haiti success. To this end, he is leading a real estate development project near Lake Azuei also known as etang Saumatre (the largest lake in the country). Dr. Orelien received a Doctorate of Public Health degree in Biostatistics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master of Statistics degree from North Carolina State University.
