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.

achieved sustained success thanks to the promotion of their passion and that
