Guy-Vanier Awards: Laurentian Bank recognizes the passion of exceptional employees

MONTREAL, April 18, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is proud to present the recipients of its Guy-Vanier Awards, which honour employees who have distinguished themselves through their personal and professional qualities. These Awards underline the exceptional contributions of employees who serve as excellent ambassadors for the Bank and inspire their colleagues on a daily basis with their dedication and motivating attitude. The Guy-Vanier Award was created in honour of Mr. Guy Vanier who was President of Laurentian Bank from 1950 to 1967 and who instituted a grant at the time of his departure intended to recognize employees that stood apart in a particular way.

The Guy-Vanier Awards have three specific components. The first is presented to employees who have demonstrated unparalleled passion in carrying out their functions. The second - the Guy-Vanier Career Award - celebrates the support and exceptional track record of a long-standing employee who has actively contributed to the Bank's growth and development during the course of their career through their ongoing dedication and commitment. Finally, the Laurentian Bank Up-and-Coming Award, for its part, acknowledges the contribution of employees who have only recently joined the organization but have played a key role in the success of their team and the Bank as a whole.

The 2012 Award recipients are:
