Laurentian Bank Congratulates the Winners of the Aces of Finance Competition 
MONTREAL, May 9, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank extends its 
congratulations to all the financial executives who were honoured yesterday 
evening at the Aces of Finance gala. The Bank's President and CEO, Mr. Réjean 
Robitaille, served as Honorary President of the event. 
Organized by the Québec section of FEI Canada (Financial Executives 
International Canada), the Aces of Finance competition was created to promote 
greater awareness of the role and importance of financial executives within 
organizations. It constitutes a veritable window on the profession of 
financial officers and the tasks and leadership responsibilities the position 
entails. "As a prime player and employer within Québec's financial sector, 
Laurentian Bank is particularly proud to be associated with this competition." 
underlined Mr. Robitaille to the guests in attendance at the gala. "We believe 
it is very important to celebrate excellence within this sphere of activity." 
Financial executives are increasingly playing a catalyst role in organizations 
today, with their contribution extending beyond the provision of their 
financial expertise to the formulation of highly innovative ideas and 
strategies. "These executives play a critical role in promoting their 
organizations' growth and business within a constantly changing environment," 
added Mr. Robitaille. 
The competition also includes an Homage Award component that publicly 
recognizes financial executives who have stood apart in an exemplary manner 
over the course of their career. This year, the Québec section of FEI Canada 
presented the award to Mr. André Imbeau, Co-founder, Vice-Chair and Corporate 
Secretary of CGI Group Inc. Mr. Imbeau has served as a financial executive for 
more than a quarter-century within this flagship of the Québec economy. 
Today, he also sits on the Boards of numerous other prominent organizations.
