20 YEARS OF PUTTING CLIENTS FIRST
UNIQUE HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE
As the founder and president of Azimuth Leadership, I’ve pretty much seen it all over the course of my career. I’ve climbed the rungs from a team leader and supervisor to manager, general manager and vice-president. I’ve encountered, managed and overcome challenges and frustrations of every kind and at every level. So there’s nobody better to keep your leaders from committing the same mistakes as so many others by making things up as they go along. I myself have benefited immensely from the support of some fantastic mentors over time – people with insight and vision who have taught me the value of engagement, integrity and accountability, and who have inspired me to give back to the business community.
ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE
I’ve been happily married for 35 years to my high-school sweetheart. I’m the proud father of two incredible daughters who have given me four grandchildren – they are the apple of my eye. So, yes, I’m a family man at heart. I like to cook (thanks to my brother, Éric, who showed me how!). I’m an avid hockey player, which keeps me in shape. And in the summer, you’ll see me out on the links with my favourite golf partner since the tender age of 14: my dad. Life has been very kind to me and I could not be more grateful.
