What would an entrepreneur say about you?
Empathy, listening and action are a reflection of my strategic involvement with partner companies.
What great business story inspires you? And why?
Quebec success stories, such as Alphonse Desjardins, Alain Bouchard and the Desmarais family’s stories, have been very inspiring. I also salute the courage and determination of the business people I've had the opportunity to work with during my career.
