MONTREAL, April 22, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The chief executive of Rio Tinto
Alcan, Jacynthe Côté, was awarded the Entrepreneurs Club prize by the Quebec
Employers Council (QEC), in conjunction with organisation's 2013 Annual
General Meeting. With this award, which recognises outstanding contributions
to the economic development of Quebec, Mrs. Côté becomes a member of the
very select Entrepreneurs Club established in 1986 by the QEC.
"It is with pride but also great humility that I accept this recognition, said
Mrs. Côté. I extend my warm thanks to the Council and especially to all
those I had the chance to meet in my career, and who, in their own way, have
taught me so much," she said.
During her acceptance speech, the chief executive of Rio Tinto Alcan
highlighted the multidimensional nature of success. She recalled the
importance of being supported at work, at home, while expressing a particular
empathy for young parents, for whom the work-family balance is a challenge.
Her advice: perseverance.
Jacynthe Côté joins some 80 Quebec business leaders that have been awarded
the Entrepreneurs Club prize by the Quebec Employers Council.
